History[edit | edit source]
Virgin Islands refer to an archipelago on the northeast corner of the Caribbean Sea between Puerto Rico about 60 miles to the west, and Anguilla on the east. These islands are part of the much larger chain that helps separate the Caribbean Sea from the North Atlantic Ocean. The islands are divided into three main sections:
- British Virgin Islands including Tortola, Anegad, Jost Van Dyke, and Virgin Gorda
- Spanish Virgin Islands including Culebra, and Visques (part of Puerto Rico)
- United States Virgin Islands Genealogy (formerly known as the Danish Virgin Islands) including St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas
- Dutch Virgin Islands, a Dutch West India Company colony from 1625-1680
