Bibles were often given to a bride as a wedding gift, and families recorded in them information about immediate family and close relatives. Bible records can include

  • Birth, marriage, and death dates
  • Parents’ names
  • Names of children and their spouses, including maiden names
  • A person’s age at the time of death may be given

Many families kept Bible records although few of these records have survived. Some have been donated to local libraries or societies.

Some indexed Bible records of Vermont can be found in:

Kirkham, E.K. An Index to Some of the Bibles and Family Records of the United States. Volume 2. Logan, Utah: Everton Publishers, 1984. (Family History Library book 973 D22kk v.2; fiche 6089184.) Volume 2 covers Vermont and New England. It is a surname index to many names from Bible records found on microfilms at the Family History Library.
