Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about our ancestor Harriett Huggett (Nicole’s 3rd great-grandmother and Diana’s 2nd great-grandmother). Diana researched records for Harriett’s early life in England. She enjoyed finding a personal history written by Harriett’s granddaughter which provided wonderful details about Harriett’s decision to leave her wealthy situation. The history describes their difficult journey and Harriett’s adjustment to poverty in the Utah desert after being used to fine things in England. We talk about how this must have been a huge transition for her. Harriett wrote a letter about her life in 1892 to her grandchildren. Diana found the letter on FamilySearch and says it shows Harriett had no regrets, despite the challenges. She lives a life of fortitude, courage and service. Diana says writing blog posts about ancestors helps her learn more details she wouldn’t have found otherwise.
