CHARLES DOBIE : GENEALOGY & LOCAL HISTORY
HAY - MacGREGOR FAMILY BIBLE

HAY - MacGREGOR FAMILY BIBLE

This is a transcript of the names found in a very large illustrated Bible, published before 1908. The book is very worn and tattered, with the binding split and hanging from a couple of threads. It was too heavy and in too poor condition for me to be able to scan it, so I just transcribed it by hand. The names are written on elaborately-engraved "certificate" pages which are between the Old and New Testaments.
