This is the Face of Genealogy
Anna Pearl Scott born 1878 in Kentucky

Charles Scott Allen born 1900 in Kentucky
This post is in response to the very offensive image posted in the LA Weekly with an article regarding the upcoming SCGS Jamboree. You can read about the article here.
Whether the author or the editor selected the photo matters little, it was published. The photo depicts a very uneducated and outdated stereotype of genealogy. Boring! Come up with something new and original, then you can call yourself a journalist.
p.s. If you've ever wondered how large the genealogy market is, call the LA Weekly tomorrow they should have the figures for you!
