Gift Bible from Germany

John, Peter, Nicholas Gift brought a Bible with them. Nicholas was given charge of the Bible. I have a research on the Bible done in 1935 done by Evan W. Parker that tracks it and them from Germany to the US and across the country. It has some dates, marriages, births, and locations in a story form. The last person to be given charge of the bible was Bert Gift at a family reunion. The Bible has the births from Germany to at least 1943 in it. Bert worked for Ford and put the Bible in a museum (as the story goes) because of the arguing over the bible. I would be happy to pass on the Bible research to anyone. If we can locate the Bible it has a whole history in it. Marriages, births, deaths, and locations are in the bible. My mother was one of the latest entries as a birth in 1940. I should contain beyond her birth as entries.
