Footnotes:

{1} The St Helena Records is a collection of documents dating back to the earliest days of St Helena, held in the Government of St Helena Archives. The Archives can be accessed in person or via email - see our Family And Friends page for more. You can search our events database, extracted from the Records, on our Chronology page.

{2} PLEASE NOTE:
1) If multiple words are specified ALL must be found for an item to be reported;
2) Case is ignored so ‘helena’, ‘Helena’, ‘HELENA’ and ‘heLenA’ will all generate the same matches;
3) Words partial-match, so ‘NOVA’ will match on ‘reNOVAtion’;.
