I have my great grandmother's reference bibles (2) and I need to add many more generations to Mckissack-20 and Simmons-7912,  right now with many more to come. Im not certified to do pre-1700 im still learning this website. How can I have them added?

For those who have unique sources such as family bibles, its good to get them on-line somewhere for other researchers. You should scan or photograph the pages.

Then you could create a free-space profile (e.g. "Mckissack Family Bible"). Link that profile to one or more of the post-1700 family members. Post the photos to that profile. 

Another way to get material on-line is to post it to the Internet Archive.  Tag it with relevant surnames, etc., so it can be found by a search. Anyone can create a free account and upload files.  Their stated mission is to preserve documents for posterity.

Jamie has given some great advice on the free-space page or Internet Archive. I would also like to suggest that you become Pre-1700 certified. It is a self-certification. Here is the link to read about the things to consider. Be sure you understand the importance of sources and how to do them. Your Bible records would be great for those profiles!
