The structure and significance of British Caribbean slave-ownership: a case study of St. Catherine, Jamaica: This paper will explore some of the initial findings including the identification of large scale plantation owners in the area and the networks established through commercial, familial and marital relationships.
Using the Slave Registers as a Source for Gathering Information about the Enslaved: A case study of St. Kitts and Nevis: Slave Registers provide a wealth of knowledge about enslaved people but also have limitations as a source. Drawing on the research of Barry Higman, this paper explores the possibilities and limits of these records by first providing a general overview of the registers and then examining the specific registers of St Kitts and Nevis, highlighting the similarities and differences between the records of each island.
