Some years ago  there was a lady who found a family bible. She wanted to return it to the family.
It was the family bible of the father and mother of William Ernest Parkers wife  Annie Isobel Grieve.
The lady who found it died and her niece placed a message on a message board .
Looking for the descendants of Parker-Vlieland we found this message .
We contacted this lady and she and others looked at the family tree and decided to return it to the nearest relative which is  daughter of Bruce Vlieland Parker .
Her name is Anne Elizabeth PARKER
Today her name popped up in the blog again .
And we wondered what happened to that bible .The last email we received about it was this

Saturday, 20 August 2011 Walter Holden who's daughter is married to the GGG grandson of Robert & Henrietta brought the bible to Wigan this week for me to have a look at. It was wonderful, the illustrations and things that were left in the bible turned out to be really interesting. The family are over the moon that they have got it and would like to thank you for your part in getting the bible back.

It would be nice to have a copy or scan of some pages of this family bible so other familymembers can enjoy it as well .
