Seeing these inscriptions in a Civil War soldier's bible were the most amazing genealogy moments thus far. Here we have Charles Judd giving an address and father's name.

These photographs have linked many different strands together. We now have connected our ancestor with records during the Civil War and ultimately relocating to Sherman, Texas.
