Bible Restoration is not a new concept. Family bibles are passed down to the next generation every day, and with each pass, the bible becomes more and more fragile. This Bible has been in our family for only four generations. Although it held many loose papers regarding the family (death notices, WWI military papers, and a bible page from another bible of births/deaths) the Family Sheets included in this antiquated bible were not filled in. This, however, did not lessen its value to the family, for it is still a treasured family heirloom. For this reason, the two hundred plus dollars to restore it to its grandeur, was worth the price.
