Welcome to the
National Archives of The Bahamas!
The Bahamas National Archives is the Government agency responsible for
preserving, conserving and making accessible government records to the public.
As we move further into this age of technology the Archives will continue to upgrade its website and add more and more avenues through which the public can access information electronically. This will be done incrementally and we would appreciate any feed back as we strive to serve you better through this medium.
It is our hope that all who access the Archives webpage will be educated about the relevancy and importance of Bahamian history, heritage and culture which is the Department’s vision.
Feel free to explore and enjoy this site.
