As is the nature of Bible records, some records are sketchy and simply list the date of the event and the names of the principal people involved; others are more detailed and include where the event occurred, who officiated at the event, and, in the case of a death, the cause. Many entries include a description of the origin of the records, such as the owner of the original Bible, where it was printed, the name of the publisher, and by whom the records were copied. Lineage charts are also provided for some records.193 pages, full name index. Names include: Aldridge, Dickey, Henkel, Redgrave, Sipple, Vinsinger.

Lineage charts are also provided for some records. The records are listed alphabetically by principal family name. In addition to marriage, birth, and death information, newspaper clippings, handwritten notes attached to or written on the pages, and personal letters found in the Bibles are also transcribed. The author provides additional biographical information at times, as well as explaining spelling peculiarities of a name and describing any unique physical characteristics of the Bibles. An index is provided to help the researcher locate buried names within the records. Donald. O. Virdin, the compiler of the previous volumes, has written a preface to this edition which introduces Donald M. Hehir as the new compiler.
