During the novel's opening, the narrator gives us a brief history of the earliest known member of her family, Simon Finch. What does Scout's interest in her family's ancestry reveal about southern values?

Scout must listen to people like Aunt Alexandra preach about heritage and Southern values. Scout doubts that her heritage is all that great with her description Simon Finch. This sets Scout apart from others. She, like her father, does not take things at face value. She is critical not only of her past but of the whole white Southern social hierarchy.
