The Bible is owned by a member of the Lanark County Genealogical Society. The transcription is taken from three photocopied pagess of entries. The pages are ornately engraved “Family Record” pages, evidently from a Bible, but there is no indication as to the Bible’s age, etc.
The photocopied pages are accompanied by a computer-generated descendant report which contains more complete information about this family. Additional information from this report has been added to the Bible entries and [put in brackets].
