Stories from the Archives: Family Bible Records

Thursday, August 19, 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. ET

Presented by Judy Lucey and Todd Pattison

Family bibles are not only treasured heirlooms, but they can also provide key genealogical information on the generations that came before you. They can act as vital record substitutes, detail family connections, and provide clues to what religious denominations your ancestor may have belonged. Bible records have also been donated to archives and historical societies across the country, including the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections at American Ancestors. This webinar will look at some of the items in our collection—detailing the stories behind them—and provide tips for preserving bible records in your personal archive.
