Bahamas, Civil Registration 1850-1959 at Familysearch.org

One of the newest additions to the collections at http://www.familysearch.org/ are the civil registration records for the nation of the Bahamas. With so many Jewish families tracing ancestry back to the Caribbean islands, this should be of great interest to many.

The years covered by the collection are 1850-1959 for births and deaths and 1868-1959 for marriages, which includes a marriage index for the years 1910-1955. At this time they are not search able by name, however the collection contains over 69,000 images. The image below is from the births of 1880-1881. It shows a son born to Phillip Treco and his wife, the former Maud Solomon. The child was unnamed at the time of registration.






This collection can be found under the Caribbean, Central and South America location at www.familysearch.org.

  3. For what it's worth, the name referenced above is actually Philip TRECO, not Greco. This family arrived in the Bahamas from Paris, France, but it is not known how or why.
