Searching for Nannie B: Connecting Three Generations of Southern Women

FEATURED BOOK – Searching for Nannie B: Connecting Three Generations of Southern Women by Nancy Owen Nelson

How would you be affected if your mother died one hour after giving you life? This is one of the many questions, Nancy Owen Nelson sought to answer when she began her search for her ancestry. Nelson’s grandmother died one hour after giving birth to her mother and very little was known about life.


In 2011, when Nancy Nelson set out to answer questions about her grandmother’s death, her search became a life-changing experience.

While providing a guide in how to conduct ancestry search, Nelson’s memoir, Searching for Nannie B, also reveals her emotional journey and the deep connection she formed with her mother and grandmother in the process.

“Nancy opens up her life, which included multiple marriages and a miscarriage, to the reader. She explores what it is to be human, and a woman. If you’re a person who likes the journey of research, history, and revelation, or simply a good story, this is a book for you.”
