Family Bible Preservation

An ongoing project of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Caroline Scott Harrison Chapter is the collection of Bible records.

Preserve your family history by sending a copy of your family’s Bible records to Genealogical Records chair Suzzie Strainer ( Your family’s records will be included in a volume of collected Bible records published by the Caroline Scott Harrison Chapter, DAR. Bound copies will then be placed at the Indiana State Library (Indianapolis), Allen County Public Library (Ft. Wayne, IN) and the Daughters of the American Revolution Library (Washington, DC) for the perusal of future generations of researchers.

If the Bible records have been transcribed by family members who are familiar with name spellings that is most helpful; however, if the Bible records have not been transcribed we will do so. If possible, please provide the title page and the dated page (on the title page, or on the back of the title page). Please list the name and address of the present day owner including county.
