Johnson County Library

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on April 23, 2010 by Ginger Smith

Today I sent off a request to the Johnson County Library for copies of a few pages from the Johnson County Historical Society Journal. Pages 6-14 from the April 1980 edition has marriage records from Johnson County, AR that include my Smith family. I emailed the library and they said all I had to do was send a SASE to the library with my request and a check for $2.00 for copy costs and they would mail the copies back to me! I can’t wait to receive them! And if this process goes as smoothly as I hope it will, I will send them more requests.

By the way, I found my Smith family in these journals by using the Book Index database on rootsweb. Simply type in your ancestor’s first and last name and then select the title you wish to search in and the database will bring back a list of results for that name.
