Bibles, Hymn Books and Prayer Books

Post by Christopher » 08 Apr 2009, 19:41

Old Bibles, hymn books and prayer books sometimes contain notes about their owners. The Bibles may be large ones with information relating to the family who had them in their possession originally or they may be ones given as a gift by a godparent, a relative or a sponsor. The Torrens website contains some information about British Family Bibles as well as a link to Bible Records Online http://www.torrens.org.uk/BFB

The following link contains another link where you can Search For Old Family Bibles Not only do old bibles appear at auctions, in antiquarian book shops and on Ebay auctions ... they also appear in house clearance sales. http://www.free-stuff.me.uk/free/genealogy/&lstref=8
