Bible Records are among the most valuable contributions that can be made to this site. They are one of a kind and terribly vulnerable to permanent loss. Submitting them to the site can rescue them from obscurity and make them available to other family members. Save these precious records. Get them up here where they can be used and preserved.

Diaries, Letters, and Bible Records are among the most valuable additions we can hope to have for the site. First, they are one of a kind. Only one copy exits, usually in private hands, unavailable to the public or to other descendants. Many even end up on the auction block where they are valued for very different reasons than we genealogists value them. Second, they cover events, relationships, births, marriage, deaths for a period when public records were not kept in our area, Pennsylvania and New York. They may well be the ONLY record of a person's vital dates, or even existence. Third, they are VERY vulnerable. If a person has the only copy of certain information in existence and it is damaged, it is GONE FOREVER. Getting these records transcribed and available is the only way to preserve this information about the people who took the pains to record their existence. We owe it to them and to our fellow researchers who have willingly shared their own resources.

I am certain that many of you have in your possession Diaries, Letters, or Bible Records or Transcriptions thereof that can add to the body of knowledge we make available to the researcher. Get those records in. At the same time you can register as a descendant for that following the format I have established below. If you descend from families whose Bible records are already on site, just give me the path to them from you. Use only real names and not marrried names, to show our female ancestors the same respect and individual recognition we give our male ancestors. Separate the generations with commas only, no number or any other indicator. Simple is best and causes me the least amount of editing. If the Bible represents multiple generations, as the one in my example does, present it as I have in the example.

The Bible record transcriptions may be done in your word processor and sent as a file attachment or may be typed into your email. Please proofread FIRST.  I do not want to have a submission followed by several corrections. Check your work and then send it.  Do NOT use tabs in your work. If you are using columns, either use Excel or insert a table into your document. Tabs collapse when converted to HTML and all your formatting will be lost.

If you have Bible records from other areas that are not already published, please include those also, as we need to get these out to the people who need them.

In a message dated 12/16/2007 2:41:10 PM Eastern Standard Time, writes:
I have an old family Bible that appears to have belonged to an Aaron Rowe (name written in pencil on a front leaf).  The Bible was published in 1847.  On the "births" page, the following are recorded:

Aaron Rowe Born Aug 6 1796
Polly Rowe Born Jan 25 1799
S. Freeman Rowe Born Sept (?) 21
Sarah A. Rowe Born June 24 1828

Many Rowes and Nelsons are listed.  The most recent birth is John Garst, Dec 12 1953.

I didn't find these exact names on your site, but the family names appeared with enough frequency that I thought I would ask if these names ring a bell?

Thank you,
