The Tennessee State Library and Archives holds hundreds of family Bible records in several formats and within many collections. The Bible records featured here were taken from photocopies in TSLA’s vertical files; additional records will be added as they are donated or discovered in manuscripts collections. The bulk of the records in this collection date between the late 18th and early 20th century
This index contains over 35,000 entries in which vital dates (births, baptisms, and other sacraments, marriages and deaths) of family lineages have been written along with the name of the submitter. This index was created from ten volumes entitled “Bible and Family Records at Western Reserve Historical Society” published between 1967 and 2002.
