The Enid M. Baa Library of the Division of Libraries, Archives
and Museums (DLAM) has acquired an extensive collection of
memorial booklets since the early 1970's for U. S. Virgin Islands
residents. Booklets are usually more than 10 pages long and give details of the life and family
connections of the deceased.
Permission to create electronic reproductions was
requested from family members who donated booklets to the
Baa Library. Public service announcements promoting the digitization
project have also been used to request copyright permissions from family members.
Signed copyright releases are kept at the Baa Library.
Following is the list of
funeral booklets. If you would like to donate an item to the
collection you may print the form below, sign and take the
original to Baa or any UVI Campus Library. Call (340)774-0630
