The folks at Bible Rescue have Bibles containing genealogy of the Nelson / Bill family, the Dering / Lowry / Mills / Chadwick family, Crumrine / Slayton / Dunn / Simlick family, the Clapp family, the Gaines / Martin family, and many more.
Some of their recent successes include reuniting the Baldwin family Bible and the Gillis family Bible with family.
For those interested in genealogy, make sure you check them out and keep checking back. Best, Pat
The family bible is a family's connection to the past and future. It connects an entire family across generations to their history, to their faith and provides an understanding of who their ancestors were. Family bibles often contain locks of hair, photographs, newspaper articles in addition to names, dates of birth, death and marriages.

KEENE, N.H. — Edwin Chester Hopkins' casket was draped with an American flag that had hung above the state Capitol. Boy Scouts saluted as the motorcade weaved around the colonial town square to the cemetery, where a military bugler readied to play taps in the dappled sunlight of a cool autumn day.

You could say Andrea and Jesse Ybarra of Phoenix, Arizona, were “FC before FC was cool.” Jesse’s first motor vehicle driving experience was in a Jeep FC-150 Forward Control (FC) on the remote desert ranch where he grew up, and the FC-bug has remained in his blood ever since. Today, he and wife Andrea are considered the FC enthusiast group’s best ambassadors and promoters through their events and website (). So what would the ambassadors drive? Jesse has probably bought, sold, scrapped, restored, and built-up more FCs than anyone, but the project in which he invested most of his time, effort, and hard-earned lessons lately is a ’64 M-679 Forward Control Ambulance.

Wisconsin Cop Hits the Jackpot with Ty Cobb Poster Hung in Barn for 90 Years (Link) Forbes Contributed by David Seideman
Earlier this year a Wisconsin police offer overheard a lively conversation at his station. The topic was a TV story about the Lucky 7 Ty Cobb tobacco card find in the South. By now, you’ve probably heard that family cleaning out their great grandfather’s house happened upon seven super rare baseball cards in an old paper bag that was about to be discarded. In March four of the baseball cards from the “Lucky 7 Find” sold for an estimated $3 million. The policeman told his colleagues that he owned a baseball artifact that had been hanging for 90 years in a barn on property he bought 10 years ago. Another officer who was a collector did some research and broke the fantastic news: he owned a poster ...Read More
The 1927 Yankees had an unbelievable collection of talent that led them a 110-44 regular-season record and World Series victory. The infamous "Murderers' Row" of Earle Combs, Mark Koenig, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bob Meusel and Tony Lazzeri put up historic offensive numbers, as the team led the American League by a wide margin in both runs scored and run prevention.

LONDON (AP) — Archaeologists say they have discovered the oldest handwritten document ever found in Britain among hundreds of 2,000-year-old waxed tablets from Roman London.
Museum of London Archaeology experts say they found more than 400 wooden tablets during excavations in London's financial district for the new headquarters of information company Bloomberg.
So far 87 have been deciphered, including one addressed "in London, to Mogontius" and dated to A.D. 65-80 — the earliest recorded reference to the city, which the Romans called Londinium.
Another is dated Jan. 8, A.D. 57 — Britain's earliest dated hand-written document. Read More
Millions of immigrants came in through Ellis Island from the day it opened in 1892 to the day it closed in 1954. Amateur photographer Augustus Sherman, who worked there as a registry clerk from 1892 to 1925, took hundreds of photos of the new arrivals, often in elaborate traditional dress they had brought with them. He gave the photos simple labels—“Italian woman,” “Scottish boys,” “German stowaway”—that tell the barest of background stories. Courtesy of the Ellis Island Collection at The New York Public Library Digital Collections, here are 12 of Sherman’s portraits of immigrants on their way to a new life in the U.S. Read More
On this second page of the scrapbook is a poem written by Wisconsin poet Henry Reed Conant (?-1923) titled, Faces that are Gone. As the date reflects, this page was probably created in 1892.
Another clipping shows the poem Our Two Opinions, written by Eugene Field. Field was established in his own rights working for the Chicago Daily News in 1892. His father, Roswell Martin Field (1807-1869) was also well-known. The elder field represented Dred Scott (dates unknown) the slave who sued for his freedom in 1857. (Dred Scott vs. Sandford or the Dred Scott Case).
As of yet, I have not researched the other poems--maybe someday. Enjoy, Pat
For a moment, think of every major event that has occurred in your life since 1986 (if you're old enough, of course). Many birthdays have come and gone, children have grown to become adults, and we went from listening to "Rock Me Amadeus" to well... Justin Bieber. In a nutshell, things have changed quite a bit, but not for everything. In 1986, this Aston Martin DBS was rolled into a barn and locked safely away from prying eyes, and for the last 30 years, that is exactly where it has remained, until now. The dusty yet gorgeous Aston will cross the Silverstone Auctions block in May, where it's expected to fetch upwards of £60,000 (about $87,000). New in 1968, it would have cost about £4,470. Read More

In the last decades of the 19th century, lower Manhattan was a densely packed collection of slums. With waves of immigrants entering the city and land at a premium, landlords bought up buildings and subdivided them into ever smaller partitions, housing dozens of people together in squalid, dark, unventilated rooms. Buildings often covered 90% of a standard 25-by-100-foot lot, with windows and ventilation only at the front and back. Read More
