Wisconsin Bible Records

A family Bible is a Bible that has family information recorded within it. A tradition among many families, family Bibles may be good sources of information about family members. They may provide names of parents, children, spouses, and their dates of birth, marriage, and death. If the information was recorded as the events occurred, it is usually regarded as reliable. In some families, Bible records may be the only place where vital records information was recorded. Generally, family Bibles are passed down to succeeding generations, but those no longer in the family's possession may be housed at historical or genealogical societies.
