Virgin Islands History Explored…

Gary James and Celeste Fahie explore historical highlights in Virgin Islands history as prompted by questions from brother Akeem. The occasion was Transfer Day 2017, marking the centennial commemoration (100 years) from the historical occasion. On March 31, 1917 the United States purchased from the kingdom of Denmark, the Danish West Indies, now known as the Virgin Islands of the United States of America.

A recent transplant from New York City, James  relocated to the “big island” in 2009 on a research mission, tracing his paternal ancestry on St. Croix. James was touting his book “Transfer Day” the first installment of a comprehensive research project.
