I found an old small and battered family bible at the carboot today. I had to buy it ,,,,guess im a real family history saddo
The bible has the usual names and dates written inside it,,,and when i saw the old faded ink,,and the way it had been obviously handed down the family,,,i had to spend the 50p the lady wanted for it,just so i could research it !
The bible was first presented to a Annie E Langtry in 1878 on her 15th birthday,,,and so i am now just going to start having a look at who this girl was,,,how the other names in the bible are related to her,,,and maybe try and see if there is a descendant i can trace who would want it. I know that if it was mine,i would be fascinated to see it,,to look at the handwriting,and to see my ancestors names as written by my great great grandparents maybe? The bible was last handed on in 1935 to George Ernest Day from his mother,,,,cant wait to piece together the connection between Annie Langtry and George ,,,keeps me busy at work if nothing else:biggrin:
