The resources available
There is an increasing demand from the public for access to sources of family history and historical civil status documents, as well as iconographic documents such as old photographs. Through this initial version of the portal, the Martinique Archives is making available to the public its iconographic collections (post cards and photographs) as well as its civil status registers - individuality (the family names given to slaves after abolition) and slave registers.
The iconographic documents
The post card and photograph collections on line come from private collecgtions and represent an important and varied source of local history.
