Family Bible

 I am not sure how many of you have a family Bible that records births and deaths.  Somehow I ended up with it.  It was published in 1876 and for several generations it was kept up to date.  I am filling in my family tree on 23&Me.

  1. Forty Years ago, when my Uncle was still alive and compos mentis, he visited my dad, and they had a long conversation about who might have "The Family Bible" from about that vintage, which no one living seems to have ever seen, with records of their father's brothers and sisters, some of which may have actually survived infancy. Still no actual evidence. Good to see your family was literate enough and organized enough to have a family bible, keep it safe, and record births and deaths in it.
