Relatives often gave a Bible to a bride as a wedding gift, where she recorded information about her immediate family and close relatives. Relationships were seldom stated but were often implied. Names of parents, children, and their spouses, including maiden names, were frequently given along with dates of birth, marriage, and death. Sometimes the age of a person was given at the time of death. Many families kept [[United States Bible Records|Bible records]] from the 1700s (and sometimes earlier) to more recent times, although few have survived. Some have been donated to local libraries or societies.
