Welcome to the Bahamas Project!
(rough draft - please edit as you see fit.)
This project focuses on collaboratively growing the genealogy of the Bahamas, contributing proper citations, and acknowledging the research of others.
The project is open to those interested in the Bahamas, but non-Bahamas profiles should NOT use the Bahamas template. The Bahamas project also includes the Turks & Caicos Islands from 1799 to 1848 when they were administered by the Bahamas.
When using G2G to discuss research related to the Bahamas Project, please use the tag For WikiTreers interested in persons who lived in the Bahamas. (insert scope here)
Group members can take primary responsibility for a specific person, and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, and removing incorrect information. If there isn't a particular person that interests you, you can contribute to any of these tasks on any profiles, especially those that have no group manager.
Conversations related to this project happen on G2G using the tag bahamas.

Unconnected Bahamian Genealogy
These ancestral trees and their related families are believed to be currently unconnected to each other and the mother WikiTree:
Bahamas Project members should add their tree to the above.
The project box for this project is Template:Bahamas. To use it on a profile, just put the following text on the profile, above the biography:
== Biography ==
This will display the project box, and will also put the profile in Category:The Bahamas, so you don't need to include the Category line when you're including the project box.
