California Bible Records

A Bible was often given by relatives to a bride as a wedding gift, where she recorded information about her immediate family and close relatives. Relationships were seldom stated but were often implied. Names of parents, children, and their spouses, including maiden names, were frequently given along with dates of birth, marriage, and death. Sometimes the age of a person was given at the time of death. Many families kept Bible records from the 1700s (and sometimes earlier) to more recent times, although few have survived. Some have been donated to local libraries or societies.

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) collection contains many volumes of Bible records for families from California and other states. Volumes 2 through 24 of this set were microfilmed in 1972 at the DAR Library, Washington, D.C. (Family History Library films 844415-421). Each volume is individually indexed. Another partial index to these volumes and the collection described in California Genealogy is E. Kay Kirkham, An Index to Some of the Family Records of the Southern States (Logan, Utah: Everton Publishers, 1979; Family History Library book 973 D22kk v. 1; fiche 6089183).
