[Note:  the pages of the Bible were obviously altered at some point.  Some of them have had things added while others were “Corrected” by family members.  In the 1970s or 80s, Daniel Westphal corresponded with my Great-Grandfather Claude Stout and he, my grandmother Gwen Stout Thompson, and his sister, my great-aunt, Mabel Stout Parsons, went through the genealogy pages of the bible and “Corrected” and added information they thought would help him!  I have tried to separate out the corrections and additions from the original information when I add it to my genealogy but I am also presenting the scanned images so that other researchers may make their own interpretations of what was original and what was corrected!] 

I will be posting more of the bible pages in future Monday posts.

Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging prompt used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites.

An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin – some we never met – others we see a time in their life before we knew them. A fuller explanation can be found here.

Amanuensis Monday is a popular ongoing series created by John Newmark at Transylvanian Dutch.
