Recovered Treasure

Thanks to a sharp eye, a bit of family history in the Nemaha-Marshall County area was rescued over the weekend. A well-used Bible was found and donated to the historical society. Even though in very poor condition, this Bible contained a wealth of family information. Included in the Bible were entries for births, marriages and deaths along with a pile of newspaper clippings. The family pages are being placed in the archives. Since the acid in the newspaper clippings would contaminate the archives, the clippings were photographed and then discarded.

Below are some of the images associated with this family treasure:
