I have by inheritance come into possession of a family Bible (London,
New York: No publisher, 1867) once belonging to the STUPPEL family of
Quebec Province, Canada, with the following dedication in a lovely
handwriting: "Presented to George and Charlotte Stuppel / On the day of
their Wedding / June 6th 1870."

It contains dates of birth, marriage, and death for three generations,
an original marriage certificate from 1897, and several newspaper
clippings which, though lacking dates, places of publication, and
titles, are nevertheless informative. A descendant of this family
married into a branch of the WIDENMANN family.

I would gladly send the book to any family member proving relationship
in return for postal charges (net weight: 12 lbs.!). R.J. Widenmann.
