The Chandler Family Bible Project
This web page is an important part of CFA’s work to preserve and promote Chandler family history. Our goal is providing Chandler descendants, researchers, and Family Bible preservationists a central location to share and view Chandler Family Bible records.
There are several ways that you can help with this project.
- Donate your Chandler Family Bible to the CFA Library. We will work to preserve the bible with the other books in our library collection, and digitize the relevant portions of that bible for presentation on this web page.
- Keep your Chandler Family Bible in your possession, but share it here on this web page. We will assist you in documenting your bible to create a digital version to share here.
- Discover Chandler Family Bibles in your local or state archives or genealogical libraries, and work with us to create a digital version to share.
- Keep an eye out for references to Chandler Family Bibles on the internet that can be added here.
If you can contribute to this project, please contact Glen Smith, CFA Vice President.
