Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008
Do You Know that you can search just the Bible Records on the site by using the Bibles button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page
Note: The cover and first few pages of the Bible are missing so there is no date of publication.  However, the Family Portrait section in the center is marked: "Patented March 8th 1853.  Extended and Re-Issued February 9th 1869, so it must have been purchased after 1869.  I presume that it belonged to Silas Holly, father of James Nelson Holly, my great grandfather, probably with his second wife, Lucy Wheeler. (Note from JMT - This is Lucy Canfield - daughter of Betsey Crippen and Moses Canfield, previously married to Mr. Wheeler. )  All entries appear to be in the same hand and to have been written at the same time (the ink is the same)  except for Silas Holly's death, the final entry.  I have copied the spelling, capitalization and grammar exactly.

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.
