Louisiana Bible Records

A Bible was often given by relatives to a bride as a wedding gift, where she recorded information about her immediate family and close relatives. Relationships were seldom stated but were often implied. Names of parents, children, and their spouses, including maiden names, were frequently given along with dates of birth, marriage, and death. Sometimes the age of a person was given at the time of death. Many families kept Bible records from the 1700s (and sometimes earlier) to more recent times, although few have survived. Some have been donated to local libraries or societies.

The Louisiana Genealogical Records Committee of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) has collected many Bible records. They can be found at the DAR Library in Washington, DC. Over 25 volumes of these and similar compilations are available on microfilm at the Family History Library.

Do a subject search of the FamilySearch Catalog to find state-wide Bible collections -  Louisiana Bible Records including the DAR collection.
