Reader Query: Barachois, Waugh & Palmert Surnames

Grant Pritchard says:

I would also like to see family trees of Barachois. My mom, Donna Waugh was born there, my grandmother Ida Palmert (spelling??) Was born there. It’s been years since I’ve been but I have a soft spot for that town. I have aunts and uncles that still own homes there.  Anything you could send me would be great

Further Leads

This is an interesting surname. I notice after a brief scan of online that Palmert may be an alternate spelling for that name. Ancestry.com is a good source for information.
