Two good books for understanding the times our ancestors lived in: The Lives and Times Of Our English Ancestors, Volumes 1 and 2 written by Frank Smith, F.S.G. Mr. Smith did research on the Swainston family many years ago. I especially enjoyed Volume 2.

These two books are available at the Family History Library or they can be ordered online to view at your local LDS Family History Center:

Historical scrapbook of Preston and vicinity, Authors: Peterson, Baltzar William (Main Author) Utah State Historical Society, Cache Valley Historical Society. FHL US/CAN Film 237808. History of early Preston, Authors: Hansen, Lorenzo (Main Author), FHL US/CAN Film 237808 Item 12.

Subjects: Idaho, Franklin, Preston - History, Call No. 979.642 H2n, FHL US/CAN Book. (This book contains pictures of a number of Swainston's and has a picture index which makes them easy to find. Another valuable feature of the book is the list of the owners of the pictures.)
