Phil Harrison's family Bible came to him in an old chest he inherited from a great aunt two years ago. He has no brothers, sisters or children to pass the Bible on to and was concerned for its future.
Like many Bibles of the period — the mid-1800s — Phil Harrison's family Bible contains many illustrations and reference material as well as a family records section.
Phil Harrison reads the names of family members from his father's side whose lives are recorded in the family Bible he inherited two years ago from a great aunt.
Because he has no direct descendants to pass his family Bible onto, Phil Harrison called a distant cousin earlier this week to see if she or someone in her family might want the book. She told him a nephew is working on a family history and would love to have it.
