Carter Pioneers of Provo Utah


By Author D. Coleman. A biographical, genealogical and historical account of the Dominicus and other Carter Families. Born in Maine early in the nineteenth century, Dominicus and his siblings joined the Latter-day Saints in their westward migration, through the Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Platte River valleys and across the Rocky Mountains of North America to the Great Salt Lake Basin and Provo, Utah. Original book was 6″ x 9″ size. Copy is two original pages copied onto 8.5″ x 11″ paper.

We have been printing family histories for over 50 years. We have an office copy of most of those books and can make a copy for you. We then bind it with your choice of binding.  We have four options, coil binding is the most popular, hard binding is the best but it takes three weeks to print and bind your copy, our soft cover is a staple and tape binding, and the last option is to have a PDF copy on a CD (the PDF is a scanned image of the printed pages of the original book).
