Family Bible Records Project

The Tennessee State Library and Archives holds hundreds of family Bible records in several formats and within many collections. The Bible records featured here were taken from photocopies in the Library and Archives' vertical files; additional records will be added as they are donated or discovered in manuscripts collections. The bulk of the records in this collection date between the late 18th and early 20th century. Many prominent Tennessee families are represented here; some records even include the names of families’ slaves.
