Diary of a Southern Lady

If you think those Ancestry Family Trees are useless, think again. There is gold to be found there. You just have to look for it!

Over Easter weekend, one of those tidbits turned into quite a whopper! Following a hint to another Barrett family tree brought me face to face with a portrait of my second great-grandmother, Frances Georgina Scott.

That wasn’t all. Making a connection with that tree’s owner led her to another ancestor’s diary – now published – which is a treasury of family information.
