Everyone loves a little bit of mystery and adventure. But when you throw family history in the mix, something incredible happens.

A man who went on a personal quest to learn more about his family heritage recently discovered that a centuries-old Bible that belonged to his great-great-great-great-great-grandfather is still in existence.

Roger Baker, 67, found that the 220-year-old Bible remains intact while doing internet research about his family history. The quest for the book started after Baker found out that his distant relative, Andrew Baker, had owned the book.

Andrew, who lived from 1749-1815, was a traveling pastor and Revolutionary War fighter who lived in Virginia and North Carolina, the Moscow-Pullman Daily News reported.
