Do You *Really* Know How To Use Ancestry’s Interactive Viewer?'s Interactive Viewer.

Interactive Viewer has changed considerably if you are a long-time user. Are you taking advantage of the new features? Or *assuming* you know what you need to about it?

Do you know there are Settings for the Interactive Viewer?

Did you handle the Settings ages ago and haven’t looked at them since?

I had to answer YES to the last question. … BUT I found something neat that I had been missing: RELATED CONTENT. Read the full article on how to FIND that in addition to a great tip article.

“STOREY – McILWAIN” by June Curry Maddox

by June Curry Maddox (date unknown)

      My mother, Grace Storey Curry told me my great-great grandfather John S. Storey left Spartanburg, South Carolina in 1825 and came to Coweta County Georgia. With that information, I began my search for John S. Storey and his ancestors in the Spartanburg County South Carolina Court House in 1963.

Thus begins the record of June Curry Maddox’s findings of that search. Nichols Library will house “The June Currey Maddox Collection” which was so large it is taken considerable time to organize & make room for all of the great research accomplished by this wonderful deceased member.
