Bibles are Lost to us Now

Genealogy Tips by Jeannette Holland Austin Genealogy Books by Jeannette Holland Austin

There are certain standardized references which we have lost. I am thinking of the family bible. When I was growing up during the 1940s it seemed as though everyone had a large family bible displayed in their home. In addition to the recording of Births, Deaths and Marriages there were cut-outs from old newspapers, usually pertaining to funerals of the relatives. I managed to collect a fair number of bible records (copied them) from persons who kept them during the 1930s and published them as follows: North Carolina-South Carolina Bible Records; Virginia Bible Records; Alabama Bible Records and Georgia Bible Records. All of these have been converted to databases and are available to members of Georgia Pioneers (home of 8 genealogy websites)
