A Librarian in the Family Tree?
Two things I've always had a soft spot for were libraries and my great-grandmother, Georgia Wellons Berger. Imagine my surprise when I found this:
Wellons is a rare surname, and the only Wellons family in Siskiyou County I've come across is my great-grandmother's branch. Besides her father (who was a farmer and gardener), Georgia was the only one with the G. initial. Of the two, Georgia is the only one who would have received the education to be a librarian - and a school one at that. Before her marriage in 1919, Georgia is known to have worked as a teacher in Oakland and her native Siskiyou County. Additional information on the Vineland School District can be found here.
