Florida Bible Records

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.

A family Bible 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.

Locations

Generally, family Bibles are passed down to succeeding generations. Those that are no longer in possession of the family may be at a historical society, a genealogical society, a public library, or university library. Sometimes the Bible was given to a society or library where the ancestor lived, but sometimes it was given to a society or library where the descendant who had the Bible lived.
