The profiles used in Bermuda Biographies are compiled from sources in the public domainthe Bermuda National Library, the Bermuda Archives, the repository for Government records, and the Office of the Registrar General for birth, marriage and death records.
For anyone interested in doing additional research, the Bermuda National Library, in particular, is a treasure trove. There you will find past issues of The Royal Gazette, the Mid-Ocean News, the Bermuda Sun, the Bermuda Recorder, the Bermuda Times and The Bermudian, all on microfilm. Other periodicals, such as Fame magazine, are also available. Current publications often have access to archived issues online, although these do not usually go back more than a few years.
The Library also has a biographies file that contains newspaper articles of countless Bermudians, living and deceased, plus a Bermudiana card index. Most people who made a difference have a card in that index where you can find dates and page numbers of newspaper and magazine articles written about them.
Another useful source is the National Museum of Bermuda.
