Call for Contributions to Bible Records of North Carolina, Volume 2

The family Bible is a valuable resource for learning about our ancestors.

Record and share your history with others by contributing your family’s Bible records to the second edition of Bible Records of North Carolina, to be published by the North Carolina Genealogical Society.

We’re looking for records that meet the following criteria:

  • The family named in the Bible originated in North Carolina, even if they moved on to other states
  • Persons listed in the Bible are no longer living
  • Records have not been published in book form elsewhere

Details that should be included in your submission include:

  • Provenance of the record—how did you come about this Bible? Who are the previous owners?
  • A photo or photocopy of the original handwritten pages and the title page of the Bible or other evidence of the publication date of the Bible
  • A little history of the family named in the Bible, eg., if the persons named in the Bible record were born (or died) in a variety of places and you have relevant information based on your own knowledge, family knowledge, or research
  • Optional: Typewritten transcription of the pages, if you already have them

For more information about submitting Bible records, email publications@ncgenealogy.org. We will acknowledge receipt and possibly ask for more information. The book will be published in early 2021 or as soon as we have sufficient data to make an indexed book.
