Subject: Bible Collections
One of the great ways to find family info is through the use of family
bibles. The North Carolina State Archives holds a collection of hundreds of
Family bibles and over the past couple of years have been in the process of
digitizing them, and making them available to everyone online. They have
recently completed the project and if you haven't used those resources, you
may be missing out on a lot. These bibles contain many things, some have
several generations of families which include dates of births, marriages and
deaths; some include slave records with complete listings of slave families.
All of these records can prove a valuable resource of information and is
well worth taking time to explore through them.
Following is a link to the State Archives Blog discussing the Collection:
This following is the direct link to the North Carolina Family Records
Online, which includes links to the "Bible Records", as well as to other
great Collections that have been digitized. Once on the site, you can get
to the "Bible Records" by clicking onto that, which takes you to the page
where the records are broken down by Counties. Or you can do a search of
the entire Collection by clicking onto "search for your family". Either
way, you can't beat the price...FREE!
