Family Bible Collection

by Unknown (1700 – 1900s)

23 boxes (25 linear feet)

Bibles donated to the Nabb Center, whether singly or as part of a larger collection, have been integrated into this collection. A variety of print editions spanning from 18th Century to 20th century are represented, as well as various religious denominations and types of Bibles. Most of the Bibles contain hand-written notations of family history – including births, deaths, marriages and baptisms-- for several surnames beyond the title. Some may contain additional clippings or other items and some Bibles do not contain any family information. Family Bibles held by the Nabb Center and not included in this collection are also referred to in the inventory. A partial transcription of the family history pages is available upon request (full transcription will be made available online soon).

Folklife Collection - Folklore Archiving Project

by Salisbury University Students (1994)

1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

In 1994, former Salisbury University student Christy Lynn Klinger collected folk material. While working at the archives, she processed some promissory notes dated from mid-1850s and recognized several family names that can be seen on some local road signs. She decided to investigate further about the Lemmon family (photographs of the area enclosed) and retraced its deeds and history in her final paper. Another aspect that she analyzed during her research was the language and spelling used back then, which were very different of that of her time (samples of letters enclosed).
