Bibles were often given to a bride as a wedding gift, and families recorded in them information about immediate family and close relatives. Bible records can include

  • Birth, marriage, and death dates
  • Parents’ names
  • Names of children and their spouses, including maiden names
  • A person’s age at the time of death may be given

Many families kept Bible records although few of these records have survived. Some have been donated to local libraries or societies.

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