Libraries by Alan Smith

"Libraries are essential depositories of information not only for the genealogist, but for all of mankind. The ALA (American Library Association) has over 120,000 libraries of all kinds in the US. There are 29 different types of libraries from Public, Private, Reference, School, State and Presidential Libraries, Carnegie, Academic and even book mobiles to name a few."


Alan Smith lives in the western part of the United States. He is interested in the history and genealogy of the Hinthorn(e) family. He is an avid and published writer. One of his projects is the annual publication of Alkali Flats Gazette the annual Smith family newsletter which he has shared with me for many years.
