This collection, known as Bible, Family and Miscellaneous Records from New York State, consists of over 230 volumes compiled from 1924 to the present. These are located at the New York State Library, the [[New York Public Library]], and at the [[Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Library|DAR Library]] in Washington, D.C. Most individual volumes of Bible records are indexed. The Family History Library has Bible records volumes 1–143, 158, 163, and 189–210 on microfilm and microfiche (on 33 FHL films; fiche {{FHL|344523|item|disp=6331487–2543}}).

Line 41: Line 45:  
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.
