Does anybody know how to research an old Dixie brand banjolin or banjolele. I believe it one or the other. Here’s pic.

Dixie (1948) was a subsidiary of Grossman Music Company, Grossman also owned Grover, the well known tuning peg manufacturer.
Lardy's Database - Dixie - Grossman

Generally, 4 String would be Banjolele, 8 String would be Banjolin.
Both have a much shorter scale length than a Banjo which can have 4, 5 (most common) or 6 strings.
