Hi. I'm trying to corroborate if Alberta Richardson was born in St. Thomas 1880 or 1881. Her parents were Cornelius Richardson fron England and Francis Frank (Franck or Lefranc) from Haiti. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The name looks familiar from research I've been doing. Have you checked the church records available on Family Search?
https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Virgin_Islands_US,_Church_Records_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records)

You have to flip through the book images but they've been a great help for me.

Not all of the records are .. I'll try to take a peek at my records to see if I found anything while looking for my Richardsons.

Hi Josie (sorry didn't recognize you),

The only Alberta Richardson I've hit would be 10 years too young. I have a feeling you're stuck in the same boat as me with records missing because of the missing Episcopal Church baptisms from 1877-1892.

Ann

Josie! Guess what I found? Alberta's date of birth is showing as May 17, 1880 in the Danish records: https://cs.sa.dk/picture/view-values/235383?picture_series_id=1101&selectedTab=24&page=313
