Family Bibles

Many families kept vital statistics on their members in the family Bible, and often include names, dates, and places of birth, christening, baptism, marriage, death, and sometimes military services.  Most of these Bibles remain in private hands, but a few have been filed in libraries and archives. Check your regional and local libraries.
