McFARLANE - SNEDDEN BIBLE

Transcribed by Charles Dobie
Updated May 23, 1999, with information from the owner of the original Bible.

Updated February 25, 2007 and June 18, 2007, with additional information

The Bible was submitted by a member of the Lanark County Genealogical Society. The transcription is taken from four colour photocopied pages of entries. The pages are ornately engraved "Family Record" pages, evidently from a Bible, but there is no indication as to the Bible's age, etc. Entries are arranged in two columns on each page. The colour copies show that some dates were added at a later time than the original entries. Note how the spelling of the family name evolves from "Mcfarlane" to "McFarlane" then to "MacFarlane".

           The photocopied pages are accompanied by a computer-generated descendant report which contains more complete information about this family. Additional information from this report has been added to the Bible entries and [put in brackets].
