Family Bibles - return to table of contents


Transcribed by Charles Dobie.

           These Bibles are owned by a member of the Lanark County Genealogical Society. The transcription of the first Bible is taken from eight photocopied pages of entries. The pages are ornately engraved pages, evidently from a Bible, but there is no indication as to the Bible's age, etc. Although the pages are arranged in two column style, the entries have all been made across the page ignoring the centre column rule.

           The entries for the second Bible are all handwritten on blank pages, with no sign of typeset text.
