to the Bible Page
This site is a repository for all types of Bible, Prayer Book, and
any other written records that have been passed down through the
years. These sources of information are a valuable source. Thank you
for the records that you are willing to share to other genealogists,
researchers and historians on this web site. Preservation of these
records IS important and this page will help you to share your
valuable information with others that may have an interest in the
same records. What is important is preservation.
ON HOW TO PRESERVE YOUR FAMILY BIBLE
Simple, yet important guidelines for your entry, whether it is
through email, handwritten, typed, or photocopied. Please supply all
the information as much as possible. This will provide the most
accurate recording for this archive.
- Submitter's name and address (both regular mail and email).
Your regular mail will be omitted from the web page if you want.
However, it is still a requirement for your submission.
- Date of your Submission.
- Current holder of the original Bible, if known, and address.
The address will be omitted at your request.
- Make a note and list all the names included in the data. Also
make a note if they have a DeKalb County, Indiana connection.
- Name and all written information on front of Bible's
- Title Page information inside front cover, with information on
version, publisher and dates, etc...
- Family name of Bible, if known.
- Explain if the information was extracted from the original
Bible or made from copies that were made from the original
- Bible transcript typed out in its entirety. Copy this out
exactly as written errors and notes that are included in the text
of the Bible are also wonderful finds! Make sure it is in the same
order as written and has no added data.
- If there is a place that you know that an explanation is
helpful, as in a known error, please enclose your comments in
[square brackets], so that it will be obvious that those
are your comments. This will be helpful so that someone reading
the information will know that the remarks are NOT a part of the
original records, but from the submitter.
- In many Bibles the information was not written in English. The
entries do not need to be translated to English...please copy the
information exactly as in the Bible. This archive is for reporting
accurate and exact information.
- As with most records we genealogists, researchers and
historians come across, there is often times we become stuck when
trying to figure out letters or other symbols that are used. So,
as you are writing this information out, if there is a
questionable part use only one ? for a questionable entry. For
missing letters in a name and/or place use dashes, (example:
Le-nde- -ohn Hamm-n )where appropriate.
- Lastly, supply a list of all surnames that appear in the Bible
transcript. If they also include dashes, as above, that is still a
part of the surname list, include them also.
Send your submissions in a message that are either scanned,
attached to an email, or typed, handwritten or photocopied and then
snail mailed to me. Copy the information so it may then be mailed to
my snail mail address which I will supply upon request.
