Peterborough County Family Bibles

Family Bibles are a wonderful genealogy treasure. The Family Register Section is often filled in with Births, Marriages and Deaths of family members.

Sometimes the family bible owner adds a family tree or genealogy to the pages. In some cases, the person entering the information in the Bible may add notes about family. This can help you find your ancestors.

Sometimes obituaries or death notices from newspapers are clipped and put inside the Family Bible. Often Family Bible Records will provide that elusive maiden name of a female ancestor or help you locate the birthplace and birth date of an ancestor.

Some Bibles even contain names of Godparents, baptismal records and cemeteries where an ancestor is buried.
