A family Bible is a Bible that has family information recorded within it. A tradition among many families, family Bibles may be good sources of information about family members. They may provide names of parents, children, spouses, and their dates of birth, marriage, and death. If the information was recorded as the events occurred, it is usually regarded as reliable. In some families, Bible records may be the only place where vital records information was recorded. Generally, family Bibles are passed down to succeeding generations, but those no longer in the family's possession may be housed at historical or genealogical societies.  
  
A family Bible is a designation given to a Bible which has family information recorded on pages within the book. This has been a tradition among many families and is a good source of information about immediate family members and relatives, including names of parents, children, their spouses as well as their dates of birth, marriage and death. This is a valuable resource because, if the information is recorded as the event occurs, the information is regarded as being reliable. Also, for some families, Bible records may have the only recorded vital statistics information. Generally, family Bibles are passed down to succeeding generations, but those that are no longer in possession of the family may be at a historical or genealogical society.
