Bahamas DNA Project
NEWSLETTER August/September 2007

Last Meeting – An interested crowd came out for our June meeting, where we showed a ZNS documentary entitled, Remembering the Contract. Professor Tracey Tremaine from the College of the Bahamas, the historian behind this project, was available for questions. Undoubtedly, we all learned a lot about the importance of oral history, and were reminded how this field needs to be pursued urgently, as time is ticking.

New Website Feature – Earlier this year, we started recording our meetings on video. To make these documents available to a wider audience, some of these videos are now available online, through our website, on Google® Video™.

NEXT MEETING - As many of you already know, Sir Clement Maynard has recently published the first volume of his memoirs, entitled "Put On More Speed." The book is a must read for everyone interested in Bahamian history, and we are happy that Sir Clement has agreed to talk about his book at our September meeting.

Sir Clement Maynard – Put On More Speed

Museum of the Bahamas Historical Society
Shirley Street & Elizabeth Avenue
Thursday, 27 September 2007 – 6:00 pm

We look forward to seeing you there as we resume our monthly meetings after the summer break!

As always, admission is free for members and the interested public.

Help Needed – In order to expand our online services, we would like to make our library accessible by means of an online catalogue. Is there anybody out there, who can set us up with OpenBiblio, that is to get it to run on our server and teach us how to use it? Your help is appreciated. Thank you!

Wanted – Does anyone have old issues of the Queen's College magazine The Magpie? I am particularly interested in 1945, but I think that there are a lot of QC Old Scholars who would be interested in seeing as many of them as possible. Also, I know that QC is trying to assemble as much of the school's history as possible. Old issues of the Magpie would make a valuable addition to their collection. The QC Foundation's website is www.qcbahamas.com; they can be contacted at foundation@qchenceforth.com.
