How many family Bibles are there in the Missouri Valley, vith unpublished family records dating back one hundred ears or more? If we had an accurate estimate of these records we would be astonished at the number. During the last six weeks it has been my privilege to secure copies of six family Bible records. In two cases the Bibles had long since disappeared, and the records had been kept between the leaves of old books until the paper could no longer be handled. Portions of the pages, sometimes carrying part of a date or name, were missing. Carelessness, you say? No, hardly that, for the crumbling record, written by a revered father or mother, is all that remains; no one knows what has become of the Bible.
As such a record passes from one generation to the next its preservation is dependent upon the person who inherits it. It may be a prized possession, deeply regarded, or merely an old relic, of no value to its owner. In the latter case it's existence is a matter of chance and the probability is that it will be discarded or lost. Such contingencies create missing links in the line of descent of many families unless a copy of the Bible record has been made by some interested person and preserved.
Do you know of the existence of such a family record, as yet unpublished? If so you should at once take steps for its permanent preservation. Photostatic copies should be made so that the original need not be handled when being studied, or the record should be printed in a genealogical magazine so that it may be easily accessible for reference; then it should be placed with some historical or genealogical society which has facilities for caring for such material. Let us preserve these records for posterity.
The announcement of the forthcoming Index of Genealogical Periodicals by Donald Lines Jacobus, has just reached the Editor's desk. Such a volume, compiled with the care that is characteristic of Mr. Jacobus' work, will be indispensable to every working genealogist and will save days of tedious search. We take pride in the fact that the Nebraska and Midwest Genealogical Record is one of the magazines to be included in this index.
I have specialized in Genealogical and Historical Books A constantly renewed stock of more than 5,000 volumes of GENEALOGIES, TOWN AND COUNTY HISTORIES, VITAL RECORDS, SOCIETY PUBLICATIONS, etc., always on hand.
With my shop at my residence, and issuing no Genealogical Catalogues, I have a material saving in overhead expense, and can usually offer substantial reductions on catalogue prices, if specific wants are submitted. State exact titles desired, if possible. Can supply from stock or by search almost any book seen in catalogues.
