Other History Resources
Many wards or branches appointed members to compile a history. Copies may be in the ward library or in homes of members. Some contain biographical sketches of members of the ward at the time of compilation.
The following have not yet been linked, most may be in towns other than Salt Lake City. (This tells me we need an alpha list for SL County - to do via Exel)AdkinsWH 20:50, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
