More Diaries and Letters of Tri-Counies
Other Bible Pages on this Site
For MAY 2002 we concentrate the site to collecting more of our Diaries, Letters, and Bible Records from this area. You may register yourself as a descendant following the directions below.
Diaries, Letters, and Bible Records are among the most valuable additions we can hope to have for the site. First, they are one of a kind. Only one copy exits, usually in private hands, unavailable to the public or to other descendants. Many even end up on the auction block where they are valued for very different reasons than we genealogists value them. Second, they cover events, relationships, births, marriage, deaths for a period when public records were not kept in our area, Pennsylvania and New York. They may well be the ONLY record of a person's vital dates, or even existence. Third, they are VERY vulnerable. If a person has the only copy of certain information in existence and it is damaged, it is GONE FOREVER. Getting these records transcribed and available is the only way to preserve this information about the people who took the pains to record their existence. We owe it to them and to our fellow researchers who have willingly shared their own resources. 

I am certain that many of you have in your possession Diaries, Letters, or Bible Records or Transcriptions thereof that can add to the body of knowledge we make available to the researcher. I too am guilty as I have many Bible transcriptions I have collected for my Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project that I have not yet had typed up for the site. I will do it, if you will. Get those records in. At the same time you can register as a descendant for that following the format I have established below. If you descend from families whose Bible records are already on site, just give me the path to them from you. Use only real names and not marrried names, to show our female ancestors the same respect and individual recognition we give our male ancestors. Separate the generations with commas only, no number or any other indicator. Simple is best and causes me the least amount of editing. If the Bible represents multiple generations, as the one in my example does, present it as I have in the example.

The Bible record transcriptions may be done in your word processor and sent as a file attachment or may be typed into your email. Please proofread FIRST.  I do not want to have a submission followed by several corrections. Check your work and then send it.  Do NOT use tabs in your work. If you are using columns, either use Excel or insert a table into your document. Tabs collapse when converted to HTML and all your formatting will be lost.

If you have Bible records from other areas that are not already published, please include those also, as we need to get these out to the people who need them. 

Before sending your submissions., please read the directions a second time to ensure you have followed them.

Joyce Tip Box -- December 2007 -
If you are not navigating this Tri-Counties Site via the left and right sidebars of the Current What's New page you are doing yourself a disservice. You can get to any place on the site easily by making yourself familiar with these subject and place topics. Try them all to be as familiar with the site's 16,000 plus pages as you can. Stop groping in the dark and take the lighted path. That's also the only way you'll find the search engines for the site or have access to the necessary messages I may leave for you. Make it easy on yourself.
