|When the U.S. Virgin Islands belonged to Denmark, various records were kept in København (Copenhagen). These records include census, probate, birth, marriage, death, burials, military records, and many others. These records were microfilmed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and can be found at any LDS Family History Center.
These records can also be found at the Regional Archives of Denmark.
