More biographical infos

After finally getting around to ordering Fawn Brodie's No Man knows my History and the famed Emma Smith Hale: Mormon Enigma, I was poking around in the LDS bulletin board Mormon Dialogue discussion on the "lazy Smiths", which referenced Richard Lloyd Anderson's classical, "Joseph Smith's New York Reputation Reappraised," BYU Studies 10 (Spring 1970): 283-314.

Among the other books suggested was
  • The Joseph Smith, Sr., Family: Farmers of the Genesee," in Susan Easton Black and Charles D. Tate, Jr., eds., Joseph Smith: The Prophet, the Man (Provo: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 1993), 213-25; which is archived here.
I also learned that FARMS is now called and the Maxwell Institute at BYU and has a cool website here.
