This transcription of genealogical records found in 581 Southern family Bibles provides data on more than 15,000 individuals. Originally compiled in seven volumes of typescripts, the Bible records have been reassembled here and integrated into a single alphabetical sequence under the names of the principal families. Ranging all over the South, from Maryland to Mississippi, the Bibles reflect a continuity that is often absent in courthouse records and hold great promise in filling some of the lamentable gaps in the genealogy of the South. With a complete name index!
