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. Please see below for details.

All of the records listed below include a transcription as well as actual page images. Please note that all records are PDF files (Download Free Adobe Reader) and can be quite large in size.
