What I have found in my research is "family Bibles" .. in these bibles there
were pages were the owner could record ancestors, births, deaths and
marriages. In one case, my Krebs family, I found information stretching back
five generations, complete with locations and dates. It was quite the find.
Another only had 3 generations, still very exciting to find. I think it was
fairly common for families to keep this information ... other in the forum
may know more.
