Bible Records Project

The Plainfield Public Library Bible Records Project scans and digitizes family bible records from families with connections to Middlesex, Somerset and Union counties.  The images will be available online for the purpose of sharing and disseminating these invaluable genealogy resources. Plainfield Public Library cannot accept actual Bibles, but data from photocopies can be added to the collection. Those in possession of family bible records are encouraged to submit their records for inclusion on this website.

To donate records, please send a color photocopy or a scan of the Bible's title page and the family records pages. A transcription is not required, but it ensures that Plainfield Public Library does not transcribe the names incorrectly. You can also include other information such as where the people lived, or the current or former owner of the Bible. If the Bible belongs to someone else, please obtain their permission to send Plainfield Public Library a copy.

To send the pages electronically, please use the following e-mail address: genealogy[at]plfdpl.info.

If you prefer to send copies by mail. the address is:
