    I am delighted that I have now found the family to whom this bible belongs. It has been returned to its proper home, to someone who's birth was recorded in its pages. A really happy ending to a story that began about 25 years ago when the bible found its way into my possession via a mixed bundle of items at an auction. My grateful thanks to Family Tree Forum for giving me the opportunity to be in touch with a lovely family and to solve the mystery from all those years ago.

      What a great outcome. Well done to you for not giving up on your quest.

      I dream of the day someone with as much tenacity and generosity contacts me

            Well Done for your generosity and perseverence but it would be nice to know which of the new members was the correct family from the replies here.

              Edna, we did have a thank you message from the family member who has received the bible, but I think inadvertently it was sent to the admin email account rather than posted as a message on the forum for you all to see. I replied to the person and suggested he/she logged in to thank you personally, which hopefully they will do.

                  Anne (AShurmer) has asked me to post this message on her behalf ..

                  Dear all
                  We are the lucky family that Juliet and this forum helped. My father who will shortly be 88 and is just beginning to have trouble with his memory suddenly mentioned his childhood home. I just had one of the those moments when you desperately feel 'I have got to do everything I can', I logged onto Google typed in the family name and there was Juliet with her Bible. The Bible is quite unique and he remembered it immediately, most importantly the last entry his father wrote was about him. He has talked non-stop.
                  Thank you to all the people that did respond to Juliet because I also found that we have second cousins in America which we are delighted to have.

                    What a wonderful thing! I find my eyes filling up. Something like that is so very important when memory problems start to show up. That's brilliant - fantastic. Thanks to Anne for allowing you to share the message.
