Welcome to the United States Virgin Islands website which is hosted by Trails To The Past.
My name is Charlie Vines and I am the temporary host for the U. S. Virgin Islands. If you would be interested in adopting this site or one of the other U.S. Territories, please contact me. If you would be interested in joining our group in an area other than the U. S. Territories, you can contact me or contact the District Coordinator for the area you would be interested in by visiting our District Map.
If you find any errors on this site or if you would like to contribute to this project, please contact me.
Although I do host this site, I do not live in this territory; therefore, my ability to assist with any research will be extremely limited. I will be adding a volunteer page in the future. This will provide everyone researching this county to help each other.
The United States Virgin Islands is an organized, unincorporated territory of the United States. They are considered an insular area of the United States. The islands are geographically part of the Virgin Island archipelago and are located in the Leeward Islands of the Lesser Antilles. The U. S. Virgin Islands consist of Saint Croix, Saint John, Saint Thomas, Water Island, and many other surrounding minor islands.
The land area for the islands is approximately 134 square miles. The population of the islands is 106,405 according to the 2010 United States Census.
The islands were part of the Danish West Indies until 1916 when they were sold by Denmark to the United States in the Treaty of the Danish West Indies of 1916.
If you have information that you would like to contribute concerning U. S. Virgin Islands, please e-mail the information to me and I will gladly post it to the site.
