UPI News Service, 11/26/2012 

A Denver woman said her genealogy hobby allowed her to recognize a Bible that once belonged to her great-great-grandfather.

Ann Abbott-Stong said she received an email recently from a woman in Arizona with pictures of a Bible and a note asking if the item belonged to her family, KUSA-TV, Denver, reported Monday.

"There was a hand written page and I recognized the writing right away," Abbott-Stong said. "I recognized that it was my family. I knew it was my great, great grandfather who gave it to his oldest son in 1868."

The Bible somehow ended up with another family and was bought recently at an Arizona estate sale. The email said the item was headed for auction.

Abbott-Stong and her family drove 1,500 miles to the auction, where they were surprised when organizers called off the sale of the Bible and gave it to the family for free.

She called the Bible a "missing link" for her genealogy research.

"There's pages of births, marriages and deaths in the bible. There's peacock feather, lace and hair," Abbott-Stong said.
