Discovering Our Bahamian Ancestors

The Dolly Mae Genealogy Records

Containing over 150,000 surnames of almost 43,000 families from all over the Bahama Islands, the Dolly Mae Records are a collection complied by Oreste Lomardi and named for his ancestor, Dolly Mae Hewlett Brune.

The collection is a work in progress started some 20 years ago. Numerous volunteers have transcribed both Civil and Church Birth, Death, Marriage and Baptismal records covering the years 1750 thru 1910 with some variations for each individual island or district.

The Dolly Mae Records collection is a copyrighted work and is property of the Wyannie Malone Historical Museum and is intended for research purposes only and may not be copied, distributed or sold in any form without permission from the Wyannie Malone Museum Board of Directors, Hope Town, Abaco, Bahamas.
