Level of Complexity = Low to Medium
Reviewing Family bible records is pretty straightforward. Many originate in Daughters of the American Revolution collections, so it is useful to have the DAR library search open if you intend to add information on alternative repositories. Begin by reading the FHLC entry closely, if one exists, to determine the origin of the work. The most complex part of updating Family Bible source pages is
Working with DAR records
Often, records that were obtained from the DAR and microfilmed by FHL are not easily found in the DAR Library, because they are not titled in the same way. Use creative search terms (such as the DAR chapter name and the word bible) to find candidates. Match the number of pages in the DAR record to the number of pages in the FHLC entry to confirm.
Note that the DAR Library doesn't have a permalink for their records. I have used the [http://www.dar.org/library/onlinlib.cfm#search], and placed the text of the DAR Genealogical Record Committee (GRC) reference and the accession number in the location field of the repository.
Publication info for DAR records can be updated as follows:
Some FHLC entries are microfilms of a portion of a larger record. See Source:Bible of the Merrill Family of Maine (1821-1857) for an example of setting up an "article" to reflect a portion of a larger DAR entry.
