Last Tuesday I did my Irish Genealogy presentation in front of about 34 people, which is a lot to be smooshed into the local history room. Some came in from Wake County, which was nice of them to drive that far. We also had a special guest: Betty McCain, the former Secretary of the Department of Cultural Resources 1993-2001. It is always a joy to see her. Everyone appeared to be entertained by the presentation and there were some great questions at the end. One person even came back the next day and broke down some brick walls with the databases and resources I highlighted in the talk. So I would call it successful!
