Family & Bible Records

The Family & Bible Records have been recently digitized by FamilySearch. The last two volumes are indexes to the collection. See the link to the pdf above!


Statewide Slip Index/Abstract

This slip index of approximately 25,000 entries transcribed from Bibles and other family records covers the 1600s to the early 1900s.  Each alphabetically-arranged slip contains an abstract of an event (birth, marriage, death, etc.) from a particular record and citations to volumes and page numbers of a 26-volume set of Bible and Family Records transcriptions.  The bound volumes often give information on other members of the family.

Bound Volumes

The bound volumes contain information transcribed onto set forms which indicate the original source, name of its owner and location at the time the material was deposited with the State Library, name of the individual transcribing the record, and date of transcription.  Each volume also contains an index to that specific volume.  Volume 27 of this set is not included in the Bible and Family Records slip index, so it is necessary to consult the index in the back of that volume.

In many cases either the original record or a Photostat of the record is housed at the State Library, either in the Special Genealogical File in the History and Genealogy Reading Room or in State Archives Record Group 074: Genealogy Materials.
