Lenawee Bibles and Bible Records

Family records from Lenawee County, Michigan

Includes a few marriage records, some with images.

Many Bible records were made before the official recording of births, weddings & deaths occurred at the various County seats. Traveling into a County Court House by horse to see that a birth, death or marriage was recorded was difficult. Bible records are indeed a resource of great importance to family researchers.
Please read the information at the bottom of this blog page carefully.

This blog is replacing the web pages previously stored at geocities.com. Since geocities will be closed down soon I had to come up with a method of keeping these records online that was easy and reasonably fast to upload. The formatting is not special, but, at this time I am only interested in keeping the records available to family researchers.

Good luck in your research, and apologies for the lack of format.

About Me

Lenawee County, Michigan, United States
I am a volunteer in Lenawee County, Michigan. I have posted these records for the use of Family Researchers. Acknowledge and thank many, including Charlie, and several typists. Thanks to Diane & Chuck Oslund who sponsored these records for many years. Recently I added another blog to this series, for Funeral cards and other memorials.

Lenawee, In Memory Of

If you like Lenawee Bibles and Bible Records, you may be interested in Funeral or memorial cards which can be found at Lenawee, In Memory Of.
Please read the following information VERY CAREFULLY! It contains a lot of disclaimers about the Bibles and Bible Records of Lenawee County, Michigan.

First, I am NOT researching these families. I am posting these records on behalf of the Lenawee County Historical Society and other research facilities and groups of Lenawee County Michigan.

You will find records from a few Bibles that were housed at the Adrian Public Library, the records of these Bibles were transcribed by the Lenawee County Family Researchers and have been published in their newsletter. Some of the Bibles once found at the Adrian Public Library have disappeared. It is not known if they are in the repair facility, if they have walked, or simply been misplaced in the Historical Room.

Next, NOT all these records are Bible Records, sometimes they are family records, recorded, but not necessarily from a Bible!

Next, I have made a distinction between Bibles and Bible Records. At the Lenawee County Historical Society Museum Archives there are a number of old Bibles. The actual Bibles are owned by the Society. The records are fading, FAST! I transcribed the records to the best of my ability. It took a long time, and frequently I had to use a bright light and a magnifying glass to read the records. These Bibles are too fragile to photocopy or scan. The inscriptions are too faded to photocopy or scan. The only way to save these records for future researchers was to transcribe them. There may be errors in my transcriptions, and I apologize in advance. I did the best I could with what I was working with.

IF, I have described the entry as a Bible Record, then this record was NOT copied from an actual Bible at the Lenawee County Historical Society. Bible Records refers to a set of records found in the Archives Room in Hollinger boxes (a Hollinger box is an archival safe storage box). We believe that a majority of these hand written transcribed Bible and Family Records were originally copied by Harriet Cole Clark Bowen and the Adrian DAR during the 1930's and 1940's. Other records have been donated to the society.

All possible care was taken in typing the Bible Records, no matter what form they were originally in, actual Bibles, or handwritten copied records. We are sorry for any typing errors, we cannot be responsible for errors in the transcriptions we did not do ourselves.

Comments with parenthesis have usually been added by typist to help researchers in some way, and not part of the original record.

No photocopies or scans of the actual Bibles are available. We fully realize the value of such a record, but at this time we are not allowed to do such copies.
