  • FAMILY BIBLES ARE VERY VALUABLE!
    Some Family Bibles show Church membership and some include family members' birthplaces. It is a good idea to ask your family members whether or not they are aware of any old Bibles that are still in the family. Years ago, many Mothers and Grandmothers kept Family Bibles, where they wrote information about Family members, such as births, christenings, marriages, deaths and burial information These Family Bibles are very valuable and when hand written as the events occurred are most usually very acurate. Many Family Bibles are in the Family for several generations and contain some information that may NOT be found at the local court house.
    When you find information in actual Bibles, check the publication date of the Bible. If the Bible was printed in, for example, 1900, but a birth is recorded for 1849, you know that the information about that particular birth was not written down at the time of the birth, but was written down several years later. Information recorded after the fact is not always entered correctly and needs to be considered 2nd or 3rd hand information. You will need to find other documented records to back up your findings. On the other hand, if the Bible has a printed date of 1850 and the entered Family Data is dated 1855, it may very well have been entered at the time of the event.
    When you cannot find family Bibles among your own family members, you can check with Churches, libraries, historical and genealogical societies in the area where the family lived. They may have or be aware of the location of local Bible records. It is always wonderful to be able to locate the Family Bible, but if you are not able to find it, look for Bible Records. When you are searching for Bible records, be sure to look under both the maiden name and married name.
