Family Bibles

This is only a very small selection of the Family Bibles on this particular website and is well worth a visit

“We have a selection of family Bibles we have “rescued” from various locations during our travels around the country. We offer these at a reasonable cost to those families who will take them and care for them as the family heirlooms. The Bibles in our collection were cast aside as mere merchandise. To us, they are one of the most important family heirlooms we can convey to our children.

Have a look at our family Bible list below. Each Bible contains pages which chronicle the family history of the families named. Many cover numerous generations including births, marriages, deaths, etc. If you see a family which might be one of yours, feel free to contact us and we would be happy to verify data to see if it might be one of your family’s heirlooms. Please contact us for the cost of each item listed herein.
