The project grew out of my previous book, The History of the Lynch Family in the American South, for as I researched my mother’s antecedents, I came to realize my work could not be completed before I had done the same for my father and his family. And as before, I owe gratitude to Laurie McCarthy of Scan South in Jackson, MS for her invaluable, professional assistance in producing The History of the Betts Family in the American South. Her suggestions and helpful compilation; her proofing, revision and editing skills contributed mightily into turning my years-long dream of this book into reality. Her utter competence is indisputable, and she’s a good-humored woman, too. Our association continues to be one of friendship. Her tireless work helped ensure this legacy to my children, grandchildren, Betts relatives, and perhaps to any who find our family history to be of interest.

I had some old VHC tapes that were 20 years old, I thought I'd probably never get to see what was on them because VCR's are non-existence now-a-days. Scan South was able to copy all the videos to USB Thumb Drive and also to DVD's. The videos are truly priceless memories. Thank you so very much Scan South! The videos are even better than I imagined they would be.

I happened to run into Laurie at the estate sale of my uncles home in Jackson- a very sorrowful time for me - he had mountains of VHS tapes that I was going to just throw away because I had no way of looking through them - Laurie offered to take them home, look through them, report back to me on what she found, and copy whatever I wanted onto a flash drive ! How perfect was that? And she was very timely and super reasonable. Thank you, Laurie for preserving memories for me and my family which otherwise would have been lost.
