Springsteen Family Bible

This month’s featured item is not a rock relic, but a historic artifact that dates back several centuries. The Springsteen Family Bible was discovered at an estate sale in the winter of 2021 and donated that March to the Bruce Springsteen Archives. Sue Griffin was attending a multi-day estate sale at 3 Van Schoick Road in Middletown New Jersey. She had arrived on the last day of the sale when the price of the items had been significantly reduced and noticed a bag of books on a shelf in the library. When she viewed the contents she spotted the small Bible. Upon opening the cover she noticed several pages of birth dates and marriages listed, all with the last name of Springsteen. Sue astutely purchased the bag of books for $5.
