Steve Whitley working on the translation

Steve Whitley working on the translation.

In 2012, the WRVHS received the gift of a large family Bible from Florence Kaduce. We were delighted to find that the record pages between the testaments had been filled in over the years, but dismayed when we realized they were written in German! Luckily for us, our friend Steve Whitley not only is proficient with Old English and Classical Latin script, but also German, and agreed to translate all the documents for us. Scroll down to see the pages with their translations.

If you have a Family Bible with record pages, we’d love to add it to our collection, either by holding the original safely for you in our Collection storage area, or by photographing the pages for use in our research library.
