It was great to see everyone who came out for the Swift County Historical Society Annual Meeting last night. What a nice evening! We saw many familiar faces and met some new ones, too.
I have some work to do – the Reardon girls seem ready to do some family history! I will be in touch with you all soon. Over the next couple days I am going to try to sort out who’s who in the Reardon clan.
My mother and I received so much positive feedback after our talk last night. It sounds to me that many people in Clontarf are interested in looking into their family history. Wouldn’t it be cool to start a family history group where people got together every few months or so to discuss their research? Just an idea…
Thanks to everyone who made last night so special. Anne – you did a fantastic job with everything. Thanks, too, to Marlys and the Swift County Historical Society.
Meanwhile, I added the link to the Swift County GenWeb Project website over on the sidebar under the Blogroll heading . You can also get there by clicking here. I haven’t spent too much time looking at the site, but I think there is some useful information. Make sure you let me know if you find it useful.
One more note. We have been talking to my grandpa’s cousins Donald and Gerald Regan for six years now and every time we see them, they seem to come up with another tidbit of information. Last night we were talking and they mentioned that they thought the Kenna family was related to their grandmother’s family (Creden). Donald and Gerald thought they all came from Ireland together. I am going to look into this and see what I can discover. Thanks Donald and Gerald, for another nugget of information.
