Thoughts From Our Volunteers:
A Beautiful Bible with some beautiful ephemera, letters in excellent handwriting, and a wealth of family information. Although the relationships of the people in the bible isn’t clearly evident, with a little research, I’m sure the pieces of the puzzle could be easily put together.
