Bible Records at NEHGS http://www.newenglandancestors.org/publications/NEA//the_lechmere_cook_bible_607_2322.asp
The Lechmere-Cook Bible
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The editors are pleased to introduce “Bible Records at NEHGS,” a new column in New England Ancestors . In each issue, Timothy Salls will present a transcription of an original record from the Society’s R. Stanton Avery Special Collections Department. Readers are invited to submit Bible records to the Society for possible inclusion in this column. For more information on donating your Bible record to NEHGS please see “Donating Bible Records to NEHGS” below.

In this first installment, we offer readers a transcription of the Lechmere-Cook Bible, discovered through the research of Randolph Tibbets (Houston, Texas) and donated to NEHGS by Philip Tilney of Kennebunkport, Maine, through the efforts of NEHGS Council member Davida Symonds (Agoura Hills, California).
