A THRIFT store worker who came across two “ginormous” Bibles from the 1800s found a treasure trove of important items inside.
Jenna Thalman, 35, was led on a crazy hunt after stumbling upon the good books inside the St. Vincent de Paul thrift shop in Milford, Cincinnati.
She told the Cincinnati Enquirer at the first it was “really neat” but wondered if they had been donated by accident.
After opening them up, Jenna sifted through the papers and realised there were important documents inside that someone might be missing.
Jenna said: “They were like these old 1800s Bibles for a family, and they had names on them.”
When she looked through the pieces of paper, she found marriage and death certificates that someone might be missing.
She launched into a mission to track down the rightful owner – and eventually made contact with the grandson who claimed the abandoned property.
Jenna gladly boxed up the bibles and shipped them off to the man.
As someone who has lost valuable items between moving, she had developed an interest in returning items to their rightful owners.
