My biggest brick wall smashed: John SCOTT was really John CONACHER

For over 25 years I had been searching for the origins of my 2nd great grandfather, John SCOTT who married Susan ASHMORE at Creswick in 1857.

A surprise phone call from a relative has helped me smash my biggest genealogical brick wall. She had found some old letters dating back to the 1850's from SCOTT relatives in Scotland. I have written about how I eventually found this family in a blog article.
