Last week three different people alerted me to an auction on ebay of an 1857 family bible. The seller had scanned in a couple of the pages that showed the original owner (Gideon Taylor) as well as some of the marriage and birth records (m. Sarah Burr). The three people did a search on google and rootweb.com and found that they were in my genealogy (actually my wife's side).
Fifty dollars later and the bible is back in the hands of the
family!. I've scanned the the genealogically interesting pages and offered them to anyone
who is interested.
