Caribbean Genealogy Library

My blog gets a lot of visits from people looking for Bahamian genealogy resources. This is because of the posts I've written about my vacations in the Bahamas and visits to their cemeteries.

Today, I stumbled upon the online presence for the Caribbean Genealogy Library website and Facebook page and thought some readers might be interested in learning more.

Hopefully some blog visitors will benefit from this information. Let me know what you find there.

Edit: Reader Teresa Wilson Rogers of the Rogers Family History blog shares with us another great resource for this area of the world: The Bahamas Historical Society. Thanks Teresa!


  1. Thanks for the info, Amy, it is difficult to find data on Caribbean ancestors. My mother-in-law was born in Nassau, Bahamas and I am having a terrible time finding out much about her ancestry. I do believe she is descended from Loyalists who left the US after the Revolutionary War and settled in the Bahamas.

    Another good site to check out is The Bahamas Historical Society,
    They are also on Facebook.

  2. Thank you Teresa! I've added this information right into the post so readers can see it.
