This inaugural volume represents Bible records collected by individuals and organizations; one of the notable organizations being the Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution. Over many years typescript copies or photocopies of the family records of family Bibles have been deposited at the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore and in local historical and genealogical societies.
Bibles are important in genealogical research in that they contain information about families that might not be found anywhere else. The Bible records herein have been arranged alphabetically by the last name of the family and any title page information has been included when available. Vital records have been gleaned from each bible and rearranged into four major groups: Marriages, Births, Deaths and Family Records. A full-name index adds to the value of this work.
