I am looking for my mom's old family bible. When her mom passed away we moved from NJ to MI, around mid to late 70's. All I know is my mom put it into storage. Can't remember if it was here, around Paterson, NJ, or after we went to Ypsilanti, Michigan. We lost everything in there, and mom has only regretted losing that bible. From what I can remember. it was large brown, I believe with a pic of Jesus on the front, I think. I remember color pics in it also. I do know the family name in it is GEROSKY. (although some now spell it ending with an "i"). I would really, really love to find this for my mom, have checked in just about every yard sale, garage sale, or auction I have been in, in the hopes of stumbling across it but haven't. PLEASE, IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFO, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. MY NAME IS TERRI 973-875-3661 THANK YOU

I would like to find a Family Bible for the LISCUM Family. I know one exists as I recently found proof on a late registration birth certificate for NORMAN LISCUM. His sister, RHODA ANN LISCUM, married name HENDERSON, wife of ROBERT PERCY HENDERSON completed this certificate application in Aldergrove, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA.

As proof of his date of birth, she apparently used the Family Bible as reference. It was accepted by the Ontario government as being legitimate. The person who completed the application wrote directly on the original document that the Bible was used for verification. Unfortunately, Mrs. Henderson died in 1961 & was buried in Abbotsford, B.C. I was always under the impression that she and her husband did not have children. However, on her death certificate, a Mrs. E. Thompson signed as the informant. Mrs. Thompson was living in Surrey, B.C. in 1961 according to the certificate. I have been unsuccessful in finding Mrs. E. Thompson.

If you have any idea of the whereabouts of this Bible, I would appreciate the information. Thank you, Lorrie Cole

I'm looking for a Family Bible that went missing from Port Washington, New York on Long Island sometime in the early 1960's, probably before 1964. It supposedly has Smith births, marriages and deaths dating back as far as the 1600's although the bible itself probably only dates from the late 1800's. It is believed to have been in the possession of Mary Elizabeth " Aunt May" Pearsall who died in a nursing home in Roslyn, New York in 1964. Various family theories have the bible being lost when her property was disposed of prior to her going in to the home, or a distant cousin, an antique dealer, asking her for it and subsequently selling it. I'm not necessarily interested in having the bible itself back, just interested in the information it contains. Dave Smith

Iím looking for the Craddock family bible that was somehow lost in Indianapolis, Indiana in the early 1970ís. The front cover was missing and the bible was wrapped, I believe, in wax paper.

My grandmother, Maud, gave me this bible; it had belonged to her mother. The dates ranged, approximately, from the mid to late 1850ís to the late 1800ís. We didnít know it was missing until a few years ago, and I have been looking for it ever since. If anyone may have it, please contact me.

There is a published record stating that the 1747 Carnes Bible from Germany was loaned to the Tennessee State Museum by the descendants of Cora Mayberry McLean. However, I was in the Tennessee State Museum a couple of weeks ago and was advised that all loaned material has been returned as the Museum may only maintain material which it owns.

My husband, James Mayberry Geyer, is descended from Mary Magdalene Carnes and Henry Mayberry through the Mayberry line.

I'm looking for a family bible that was in the possession of my grandmother, Eunice LEE Schmit, showing several generations of the MASHBURN and LEE families. When my grandfather died in 1967 in Montrose, California, my grandmother was so distraught that she sold the house, contents and all, without notifying family members until it was done. All my mother's childhood belongings, books and the family bible were gone.

I haven't seen it since I was a little girl, but I remember that my great-grandmother's name was in it, so I can guess about the time period it covered.

Names might've included Minnie Bell Mashburn (b. 1894), Yancy Mashburn (b.1855) Margaret Elizabeth Dobbs (b.1875), Myrtle (1888), Amanda (1890) and Henry (1895). Minnie married Joseph LEE, and their daughters were Iola (b1910), Eunice (b.1913) and Faye (b.1915).

If you know of this bible, please contact me, and thank you.

I haven't seen it since I was a little girl, but I remember that my great-grandmother's name was in it, so I can guess about the time period it covered. Names might've included Minnie Bell Mashburn (b. 1894), Yancy Mashburn (b.1855) Margaret Elizabeth Dobbs (b.1875), Myrtle (1888), Amanda (1890) and Henry (1895). Minnie married Joseph LEE, and their daughters were Iola (b1910), Eunice (b.1913) and Faye (b.1915). If you know of this bible, please contact me, and thank you.

Grandmother Annie M.McKay left the family history in a bible left in Quincy,Mass. Left it in the attic of their home and it has been missing since 1915,the year of her death. Her family name was McKay and she married Orrin D. Chick in Quincy. Sure would be nice if someone kept this as I am having trouble tracing my roots. Thank you for any help

Mollie Parker Story
Searching for a BEARDEN/PARKER Bible owned by my grandmother, Mollie (BEARDEN) PARKER QUINN. She and grandfather, Julius Parker were methodist ministers, so I am positive that Mollie kept records on everyone. Mollie outlived both husbands, but there was no one to hand down the bible to when she died. I suspect that if the BEARDEN/PARKER bible wasn't distroyed it must be in the posession the children of Ross QUINN of Atlanta GA. Mollie lived on Highland Drive in Atlanta when she died, sometime between 1930 and 1940. If anyone might know of my grandmothers bible please contact me. Thanks so much for your help.

Re: Family ARAIZA
There was said to have been a hand written history of this family. I am not sure if it would have been a bible. There may have been more than one book. In any event, the book(s) were covered in ebony and had silver work on them. It / they would have come out of an estate in Sonora, Mexico - Ures to be precise - probably about the middle 1900's and inherited by a cousin, who in turn decided she had no use for them and donated to possible Goodwill. This is all the information I have. Should anyone know of this/these item(s) please notify me, as I would like to have them back in our family

Wendy Katzenmeier
Searching for the family Bible of Emil MŁnch/Muench and Elsie Therese Ida Steif/Steiff. They were married in St. John's Ev. Lutheran Church, Evanston, IL on 15 Oct 1910. The bible should list their children, Alfred, Emil, Lena, Elsie, Martha, Anna, Raymond, Lillian, and possible one more boy. There may or may not be information regarding ancestral family of either the Steif or Muench families. The bible was lost sometime during 1970's. Believe it was accidently sold or donated when one of the above children was moving from IL to FL.

I am searching for a family Bible that belonged to my Great Grandparents on my Mothers side. The name would be WALTERS or VON WALTERS. My Great Grandma's name was Elizabeth ?? WALTERS. My Great Grandpa's name was Henry WALTERS. My ggrandfather came from Bavaria in 1878. My ggrandmother came from Saxony and they settled in Newark NJ and had 8 children. Maxamillien, Heindrich, Jr., Gustauf (he had a twin that died during birth), Fredrich, Elizabeth, Mae maybe Maeble, Helene and Rose who died in her 30's of Taburculosis. All of the children were baptised at St. Anns Catholic Church in Newark NJ. I believe the Bible was discarded or sold. My ggrandparents were married at St. Annes as well. Any help on this one is greatly appreciated.

I am desperately searching for my Great Grandmothers Bible which was kept by her daughter for many years. After my great aunt passed away the Bible disappeared. The Bible would include such names as BRAYTON, GARY, GRAY, ODLE, HEUPEL, TIRRELL. There may be an entry for Elbridge GERRY born in Marblehead, Mass. For the most part the family history is from New Hampshire to South Dakota. Possibly Clear Lake Iowa. I believe that the Bible probably was sold in the McPherson County, Leola South Dakota area as this is where my great aunt lived. The name in the Bible may be Mabel Lettie BRAYTON or Edna BRAYTON. It could go even further back then that. There is one other possible answer, after my great aunt died (her name was Jessie Pade) her half sister Doris ODLE may have taken the Bible. I don't believe she still has it but probably sold it off. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You!

Mimi Strauss-Curtis
I am trying to find my mother's family Bible. It was kept by Mary McCrackin WEBER in Stoneboro, PA after her father, John McCRACKIN died. When Mary & her husband George WEBER moved from PA to SD, the Bible was "donated" to a small local Protestant church. Family names include: McCRACKIN and WRIGHT. PARFITT, SPRINGER, RIFFLE/RIFFEL, STRAUSS, BIGLEY, WEBER, PROVINCE (spelling unknown) are some of the names of the spouses to the 13 children born in Marguerite, PA. Mother is now 90 and I would love to be able to return the Bible to her. Thank you.

Raymond Sutherland
We are searching for a Bible inscribed to "Florence from M.M.C.". We have heard that an article appeared in a newspaper, possibly in Colorado, about the Bible being found some years ago. We've been unable to follow up on that information, but we feel certain that the Bible was given to Florence Viola Daniels Taylor by her sister in law, Mary Martin Collins. Florence was born in 1872, married Robert L.B. Taylor in 1893 and died in Pueblo, CO, June 12, 1921. Our family is very interested in finding this Bible. Florence was the sister of our great grandmother. Please e-mail if you have any information regarding this Bible or family names of Daniels, Stiles, Pidge or Freeman. Many thanks.

Dianne Graves
I am searching for the Gissendanner family Bible.The last known owner of the Bible was Ernest Clyde Gissendanner of Eutawville, SC.He operated a fishing pier at the Santee-Cooper.He died in 1954. He was married to Dora Williams Gissendanner,and they had no chidren.This Bible is a very sore spot for the remaining family.The bible was passed to Ernest,the oldest son, by his father, Walter Lee Gissendanner.It is said by the older family members, that they begged Dora to give it to one of the other brothers.There were 15 other siblings.Dora refused, saying that the Bible and family pictures were valuable and she had sold them. It is speculated that it might have been bought by someone in the Wolfe family whose name was in the Bible.We do not know how far it went back, but some names that would definately have been in it are Gissendanner(Giessendanner),Rickenbacker,Wolfe,Aimar.

Now that we are writing the Gissendanner Legacy, we would really like to see this Bible and get some information from it. We would also be willing to purchase the Bible if the owner is willing to give it up.Anyone that has seen this Bible please contact me.

Bible from the Warner or Worner family lost somewhere near Browerville, Minnesota in Todd County. It was in the possession of my dads uncle when he passed away and with the sale of the farm it has been lost. We would really like to view the inside as we can't find any information on the Surname until after they homesteaded in Medford (Little Black) Wisconsin. They had been in New York for 20 yrs prior to that so we are sure the bible is full of family history. Some relatives that actually had seen it say there was quite a bit of writing in there. Other names that may appear in the book are, Turley, Coggin, Lenz or Lentz, Jensen, Huff, O'day, Nagle, Burtzlaff, Raish or Roesch, Neumes, Rotter and many more. Please contact me if you know its whereabouts. We believe it is still in the Todd County area.

Looking for a lost Bible, last seen about 1940, Todd County, Minnesota. Surname: WARNER, WORNER, OR WOERNER. Frank and Magdalena. We believe the bible was just handed down but don't know who too. If anyone has knowledge of its whereabouts please get in touch with me. We really would like to view it and see what information is available. Family members who have seen it state there is family history in there. Other possible surnames would be, TURLEY, COGGIN, LENZ (LENTZ), JENSEN, NAGLE, BURTZLOFF, LEICHTNAM, ROTTER, NEUMES. This is possibly written in German. Possible entries may be from NY and Medford, or Little Black, Wisconsin. Taylor County.

Caroline R Hancock
It has been years since my aunt sold our ROTHROCK Bible. I believe it was lost through a yard sale, or the like. Charles ROTHROCK, my gggrandfather, was born August 29, 1829. In the 1850's, he married Lydia Caroline Fry. We named our daughter after her, and this is where I saw her name! Lydia died in the 1870's. I believe that the entries go at least to my grandfather, Robert Rominger, and possibly to my Dad. It has been at least 18 years. The Bible disappeared from the Clemmons NC area. I will keep my eyes open for others!
Many years ago the Reeves family bible was somehow lost by my father, I have been trying to find it for along time. If any can help me locate it I would greatly appreciate getting it back.

William died in 1872, Martha in 1871 in Tarrant County, TX. The bible was supposed to be in possession of son Alfred (Shelly). He died early 1900's having never married. A cousin Lucy Lee Dodson may have had possession after that. She may have moved to Colorado from Texas. This bible is lost somewhere. Have you seen this bible?

I am trying to find the family bible of my Mother's family. It was last seen in 1975. My uncle died at that time. He was a bachelor. My Mom was not notified until after he was buried and the apt had been cleaned out. Who did the cleaning we don't know. No other family at all.The Bible along with a photo Album were brought over from Germany circa, 1860.
They were both very large red velet covered. My grandmother kept them in the Parlor. No one was allowed in there, LOL. But sometimes, when I was a child was allowed in and could look at the books, which I loved. Did not appreciate at the time how much they meant.

Names in the book would be: BOPP, FUCHS, BISHOP
The latest names, if they were entered would be my Mom and my Aunt and Uncle,
John Bishop, never married.
Louise Manning ( 1st marriage) If second one listed would be SEDORF
Mary Corrigan (my Mom)

I do not have any photos from My Mom's side of the family at all. As you can see I would really love to find this. It was lost or taken in Queens NY, Long Island City. (Sometime between Late Sept. 1975 and when my Mom found out my Uncle was dead) Her Christmas card to him came back marked "Deceased") I truly would appreciate any help from anyone who may have seen these or either of these books in their hunting for their own genealogy. THank you!

I am searching for the Bible of JOHN CUSTER/CUSTARD, son of Peter and Ann (Godschalk, Godshall) Custer. I received dates of parents and children's births copied from this Bible. Much other information in the Bible was not copied. The Bible was in very fragile shape at that time. This Bible was owned by the great grandaughter of John Custard. This great granddaughter was the grandmother of Robert McGill, from whom this information was obtained. At the time of copying, the Bible belonged to Robert McGill's grandmother's sister, a direct descendant of Isaac Custard, first child of John's second marriage to Sarah Steyer/Styer/Styar. Does anyone know in whose possession this Bible is today? It is needed to document our family research. Any information would be appreciated so much. I can be contacted by by mail: Bettie Confer,

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for a Carpenter Family Bible. It was given to Zada Carpenter-Rudd by mistake. At the time of her death July 1987 in Rome, NY, her daughter(s) auctioned Aunt Zada's house and all of her possessions, including the bible. This bible has many entries dating back to 1700's, and should have went to the oldest living male of Aunt Zada's brothers, who would have been my grandfather (then to my father).

David Wiley
Some years ago my father had a small Bible belonging to his father, Ephraim W. Wiley. It was leather bound and inscribed by Mathew L. Smith, captain of the whaling ship Archer (out of New Bedford), to commemorate the voyage of the Archer to the South Pacific 1856 to 1861.

When my father's mother-in-law died, several folks ranged through his home in Northboro, Massachusetts, and picked up things--I assume--that were later found to be missing: the Bible and some scrimshaw from the voyage. My main interest is finding the Bible in order to pass it along in the family.

Should it show up somewhere I would be interested in recovering it.

Please post to your International site. Thanks! Looking for our family's missing Bible. It's always been called the Hartwick Bible, but has a great deal of Beecher information including the relationship of Harriet Beecher Stowe to our family. I believe the Bible was last owned by Mike Hartwick and was probably originally either Able Sage Hartwick's or Christian J. Hartwick's. It has been misplaced, forgotten or sold. We would really like to have the Bible back or at least copies of the genealogy information inside. Will pay for the Bible and/or any costs involved.
