Mark Your Calendars!

The next Bahamas Human Rights Network meeting is scheduled for Wednesday March 21 at 6:30 PM. It will be held at the Eugene Dupuch Law School Legal Aid Clinic, which is at the VB Munnings building, next to Kentucky Fried Chicken and opposite the College of the Bahamas. Please feel free to invite others who might be interested in participating.

The next meeting of the Bahamas Historical Society is scheduled for Thursday March 22nd at 6:00pm. Michael Pateman will be speaking on "Reconstructing Lucayan Lifeways: Diet, Health, Nutrition, Lifestyle and Mortuary Varibility through Skeletal Analysis." Pateman works at the Antiquities, Monuments and Museums Corporation of the Bahamas (AMMC), and the subject he will be presenting on is the research topic for his thesis. You can read more about Pateman's archaelogical research here.

If you thought that was it for the month of March, think again. On Friday March 30th at 6:00pm, Peter J. Roberts will be speaking to the Bahamas Historical Society on “Genetic Genealogy and the Results of the Bahamas DNA Project.” The Bahamas DNA Project was launched in 2004 to support genealogical research and Mr. Roberts, a Bahamian professor at Georgia State University, is the project administrator. Early results of the project show that sharing the same surname is not a guarantee of being related.

The Bahamas Historical Society is located at the corners of Shirley Street and Elizabeth Avenue.
