Start with the free Index to Early Bible Records (pre-1830; 17,000 entries).

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) at and Holdcraft collections contain transcripts of Bible records. These are described in Maryland Compiled Genealogies. The DAR transcripts are partially indexed by:

  • Kirkham, E. Kay. An Index to Some of the Family Records of the Southern States: 35,000 Microfilm References from the NSDAR Files and Elsewhere. Logan, Utah: Everton Publishers, 1979. FHL Book 973 D22kk v. 1; Fiche 6089183. This source contains 35,000 microfilm references from the DAR files and elsewhere.

The Genealogical Council of Maryland has published a list of 2,700 Maryland Bible records:

  • Inventory of Maryland Bible Records. Westminster, Maryland: Family Line Publications, 1989. (Family History Library book 975.2 D23i.) This includes the surnames recorded, the years of the earliest birth and marriage, places of residence if known, and the present-day location of the original Bible and transcriptions of it.

Copies, or abstracts of old family Bibles that are no longer known to exist, may survive in Revolutionary War Pension application files at NARA, Washington, D.C., which are available online at three commercial websites: Ancestry, Fold3, and Heritage Quest Online.
