The National Archives of The Bahamas

It is well worth a visit here to see the original documents documenting the history and culture of The Bahamas. Doing some research in advance is always worthwhile. It can help you work out what records will be useful to you, save you from wasting time during your visit, or even stop you from making an unnecessary journey. So check out heir website, face book page or send an email in advance to find out if they have what you are looking for.

I visited the Bahamas National Archives to spend some time reading about history. The people who work there are very knowledgeable and helpful. I was provided with several different things to read that were specific to my research questions.

It was a very hot day, and the building was air-conditioned, which is not the case in some of the public libraries I have visited in the Caribbean.

Was extremely excited to be traveling to the Bahamas (land of my Great Grandmother). I used it as an opportunity to do some family research. Staff was very helpful, but due to time constraints I was not able to do extensive research. I did manage to find a document and an lady that said she would help me continue the research on her end. While I hope to go back one day an do some more research, I'm saddened to say my research lady had not contacted me at all. :-( I'm glad I live in NY, which has a BIG extensive library. I will contact them and see if I can hire someone to help me continue my research on my end. God Bless Bahamas........Land of Beautiful Isle!

A Real, True Bahamian Experience
kwi 2013 • Pary
We spent two days at the Bahamas National Archives researching the Thompson family of lighthouse keepers. Because of my background in historical research I have visited many archives--the US National Archives in DC, the British National Archives in Kew, numerous US state archives from Florida to Maryland--but few if any had personnel as knowledgeable, professional and helpful as we found at the Bahamas National Archives.
The friendly staff went out of their way to assist us in finding the resources we needed to locate as much data as possible in so short a period of time. While the archives has a policy of allowing themselves 24 hours to complete copies for visitors they waived this requirement in recognition of our pressing time limitations. One archivist had completed some of her own research on Bahamian lighthouse keepers and brought it to us from her lunch break. Such helpfulness, and friendliness, may be the truest example of the beauty of The Bahamas: her people are her country's most valuable asset. None of the resources we requested was missing, and the staff new and could produce all of the data we requested (along with their suggestions). As many researchers have experienced this is not always the case when visiting an archive.
We did have an opportunity to see some of the displays on Bahamian history along with some schoolchildren who visited. We think any visitor to The Bahamas would be well served to do the same. We only hope that the Bahamian government helps maintain this valuable archive.
