The Bible Issue
Aaron Goodwin July 23, 2018
In 2002, interim NGSQ editor Jane Fletcher Fiske designed the December issue to be a stand-alone publication centered around “that large body of records loosely gathered within the term ‘Family Bible,’ although some are found in account books, almanacs, and other places. All of these records share one characteristic—each was generated within a family about itself, at the time of an event or within memory of it.”Only NGS members have access to full articles of NGS Monthly.

So true about the family bible. It does hold many names of ancestors. Their given names, when they were born, baptized, ages, who they married and when they were buried. You can find so many wonderful interesting facts. How all of the names were passed down from one generation to another generation.
