Craven County Bible Records Online

Thx to a tweet from Jen Baldwin, I’ve just learned that the New Bern-Craven County Public Library has made a collection of Bible Records available online.  The records were collected in 2002 & 2003 by the library and the Craven County Genealogical Society.

The collection includes more than 30 bible records and can be searched and browsed. Visit the online site to check them out.  Some of the surnames represented include

  • Brand
  • Daniels
  • DeGaffenried
  • Dozier
  • Green
  • Hurst
  • Mann
  • McLawhorn

Great job to the library & society for making these accessible online! More background information can be read on the Sun Journal website.
