Please be sure to make a copy of everything in Bertha Poythress' Bible, and
of the publication date at the front, which is usually in the tiny print on
the bottom of the title page, and which sometimes is also at the bottom of
the New Testament's title page, in case the cover of the Bible & first
pages are missing due to old-age. If the Bible cannot leave the residence
or is to fragile for photocopying, be sure to carefully write down
everything, whether or not it is information that you now realize will be
Last week, a friend of mine was telling me of having copied much (but not
all) of a relative's Bible information many years ago when she & her
husband were travelling thru the town where the relative lived. She was in
a hurry & didn't take time to copy everything because she assumed she could
do so later. There was a subsequent fire, and the original Bible was
totally burned up. So for years now, her handwritten hasty transcription
of part of it, is the only thing that has been available.
We'll all be looking forward to the information you are able to get about
departed Poythress folks.
