We have our Krause Family Bible, but it seems to be a new one started when
they came to Australia in late 1900's. But at least if gave us a starting
point as it had the birth places and parents names of my Great Great
Grandparents (the generation before) also recorded in it. Without that we
would have had no clue, as we always assumed they came from Germany (as
that's where he left from after studying to become a Lutheran Pastor in
Germany), but it turns out they were from Poland.
But your post just made me think - somewhere out there will be the bible
from Poland and the generations before!!

For the Volhynian families who migrated to the Americas: was it a common
thing for every family to have a family bible? I just wonder how many of
you have this preserved.
I don't have any accountability of my ancestors having one but wonder if it
exists and still preserved in the hands of a distant cousin somewhere (a
never ending search).
