''Frederick Smith & Jane Wager/Wagar Papers"


A 1977 transcription of some of the entries in this Bible record states that the “Original owner [was] Frederick Smith of Brunswick NY, and present owner Cora Spiak of Brunswick NY.”  That transcription was done by Darby G. Livingston.  Several connections have been found to family members in Saratoga County.


Recently a researcher located page images of these Smith Bible family records at the New York State Library and pointed out various errors in the transcription.  This webpage has been edited to correct those errors, and links are provided to the images graciously provided by the researcher, Steven Ostrowski (FamilySearch & Ancestry user: "genealchemist").


[Note: It is possible, based on the page styles and the duplication of some entries, that these pages are from more than one original Bible.  Mr. Ostrowski provided the citation for one Bible: The Holy Bible, containing Old and New Testaments, translated out of the original tongues…New York, American Bible Society, 1854. The transcription by Mr. Livingston did not cite a Bible publication. Note also that some "Family Record" pages contain mixed vital records: both births and marriages or both births and deaths.]
