As part of an ongoing project to record family history details inscribed in old family bibles, a team from the Brecknock Group made two visits to Brecknock Museum to photograph and transcribe details from the collection of around sixty old bibles held by the Museum. The team comprised Sue Snook, Rob Eckley, Dr Owen Forester, Alison Noble, and Hilary Williams. The photographs will be transferred to CD, one CD to be presented to the Museum, the other to be retained by the Brecknock Group. The photographs below show the Brecknock Group team hard at work in the Museum.
