The "Person-Coming-the-Longest-Distance" Prize Goes to...

Last week the California Genealogical Society was honored to host Nora Keohane Hickey who came all the way from Cork, Ireland for A Day of Irish Information.

The event, which attracted members and guests from all over the Bay Area, included one other person who had to board an airplane to participate – member Jackie Carroll of Winter Springs, Florida.

Jackie traveled 2900 miles to hear Nora's lectures and to meet with her for a private consultation. Jackie was hoping that Nora could help her break down a brick wall - Hugh MILLING of Drumbo, County Down who settled in North Carolina and was a captain in the Revolutionary War.

Keep us posted on your search, Jackie. We love hearing from (and meeting!) our out-of-state members.
