There is a newly implemented Digital Public Library of America ( DPLA) which became active last week. It is one of hundreds of such library portals on the web. What makes this one so significant is that one of the partners is the Mountain West Digital Library. Mountain West provides over 700,000 free on-line resources from colleges, universality's , government agencies, counties and municipalities in the western states region. 
Some other digital libraries include the California Digital Library, The African online Digital Library, The British Library online Gallery, The Cornell University Library,and the European Library. All of these are great places to look for books, many of which are not under copyright laws anymore and may be downloaded as PDF files to keep in your personal on-line library. Try using Google Books to find books about your family surnames.
