Alta Helen SMITH's blood line

     Tonight is another one of my sleepless nights, as usual, but tonight I decide I was going to get up and do something instead of laying in bed. So I jumped on the computer and decided to do some genealogy work. I pulled up the MyHeritage program that I use, and froze, its been so long since I've dont any research that I didnt know where to start. I decied to start fresh I typed in the letter A in the search box and the first name to come up was:Alta Helen SMITH   So I a starting with Alta tonight.

 Alta Helen SMITH

born: 4 March 1918 in Slate Creek, VA
death: 11 Oct 1928 in Stacy, VA

As you see poor Alta died at the age of ten, so I can not research her spouse(s) and children. So I will start with her maternal line and work on that.
