Family Records in the Museum's Collection

Houston Genealogical Forum's Transcriptions

from Family Records in the Dunham Bible Museum’s Bibles

The Houston Genealogical Forum has created a database for the Family Records in the Dunham Bible Museum’s American Bible Collection. HGF photographed family records in over 100 Bibles, transcribed these, noted any special inscriptions in the Bibles, and placed all into excel spreadsheet format. The photographs and transcriptions are now available online at the HGF website. Instructions are also given for searching the data base. HGF has begun photographing the records from the Dunham Bible Museum’s Brake and Hellstern Collections, and they will be added to the data base in the future. 

We are eager to hear from those who find their families among the HGF’s Bible records transcriptions.
