Family Bibles Collection
The following Family Bibles collection began as a project with the New Bern-Craven County Public Library and the Craven County Genealogical Society of North Carolina. In October 2002 and October 2003, both organizations held a Family Bible Photocopying project and asked people to bring their Family Bibles to be copied. A copy was made for the Library and another copy for the owner of the Bible. These two projects brought over thirty Family Bibles, photocopies of which were added to the Library's collection. Since 2003, a few other Family Bibles have surfaced and were copied by Library Staff members for inclusion in the Bible Project Records.
If you have a Family Bible of a Craven County family, or a family from a surrounding county, that you would like to include in the Project, contact the Kellenberger Room of the New Bern-Craven County Public Library to make an appointment. The phone number is (252) 638-7808 or e-mail KellenbergerRoom(at)gmail.com. We would love to add your family's information to the site.
