Alabama Bible Records[edit | edit source]

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.[1]

In addition to the above list of online Bible records and transcriptions, try these other collections:

  • The Gandrud and Jones’ collection, Alabama Records, contains many Alabama Bible records. It is described in Alabama Compiled Genealogies.
  • The DAR records are indexed by surname in An Index to Some of the Bibles and Family Records of the Southern States mentioned in Alabama Compiled Genealogies.
  • Many periodicals publish family data from Bible records. These are referenced in the "Families" section of the Periodical Source Index (PERSI), described in Alabama Periodicals.

The above sources and additional transcriptions of Bible records are listed in the Place Search of the FamilySearch Catalog under:
