Bible Records are among the most
valuable contributions that can be made to this site. They are one of a
kind and terribly vulnerable to permanent loss. Submitting them to the
site can rescue them from obscurity and make them available to other family
members. Save these precious records. Get them up
here where they can be used and preserved.
|Some of the following list is part of the
Tioga County Records collected by Rhoda ENGLISH Ladd .
Additional Bible records have been submitted by guests of Tri-County
|We welcome any Bible records you may wish to submit for inclusion on
this resource page. Please submit them to JoyceTice@aol.com in Wordperfect
or MS Word Format or by any other method. If you submit themin the text
of your email please be sure you have the word Bible in the subject line.
Diaries, Letters, and Bible Records are among the most valuable additions
we can hope to have for the site. First, they are one of a kind. Only one
copy exits, usually in private hands, unavailable to the public or to other
descendants. Many even end up on the auction block where they are valued
for very different reasons than we genealogists value them. Second, they
cover events, relationships, births, marriage, deaths for a period when
public records were not kept in our area, Pennsylvania and New York. They
may well be the ONLY record of a person's vital dates, or even existence.
Third, they are VERY vulnerable. If a person has the only copy of certain
information in existence and it is damaged, it is GONE FOREVER. Getting
these records transcribed and available is the only way to preserve this
information about the people who took the pains to record their existence.
We owe it to them and to our fellow researchers who have willingly shared
their own resources.
Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008
||Do You Know that you can search just the
Bible Records on the site by using the Bibles button in the Partitioned
search engine at the bottom of the Current
What's New Page?
I am certain that many of you have in your possession Diaries, Letters,
or Bible Records or Transcriptions thereof that can add to the body of
knowledge we make available to the researcher. Get those records in. At
the same time you can register as a descendant for that following the format
I have established below. If you descend from families whose Bible records
are already on site, just give me the path to them from you. Use only real
names and not marrried names, to show our female ancestors the same respect
and individual recognition we give our male ancestors. Separate the generations
with commas only, no number or any other indicator. Simple is best and
causes me the least amount of editing. If the Bible represents multiple
generations, as the one in my example does, present it as I have in the
The Bible record transcriptions may be done in your word processor
and sent as a file attachment or may be typed into your email. Please proofread
FIRST. I do not want to have a submission followed by several corrections.
Check your work and then send it. Do NOT use tabs in your work. If
you are using columns, either use Excel or insert a table into your document.
Tabs collapse when converted to HTML and all your formatting will be lost.
If you have Bible records from other areas that are not already published,
please include those also, as we need to get these out to the people who
Before sending your submissions., please read the directions a second

I have an old family Bible that appears to have belonged to an Aaron
Rowe (name written in pencil on a front leaf). The Bible was published
in 1847. On the "births" page, the following are recorded:
Aaron Rowe Born Aug 6 1796
Polly Rowe Born Jan 25 1799
S. Freeman Rowe Born Sept (?) 21
Sarah A. Rowe Born June 24 1828
Many Rowes and Nelsons are listed. The most recent birth is John
Garst, Dec 12 1953.
I didn't find these exact names on your site, but the family names appeared
with enough frequency that I thought I would ask if these names ring a
