From The Editor:

I’m excited to introduce two new contributors to the newsletter. Mary Casteleyn lives in England and has been researching the Crowley family for many years. An example of her research appears on page six. And Anne Crowley Ronco is an experienced writer and editor. Her travel in Ireland piece is on page three. Thanks to both of them for being willing to become a part of the newsletter staff.

There is still room for more on the staff. Do you have research you’d like to see in print? Do you have ideas you’d like to share with our readers? Do you have experience in editing and/or publishing? There are many jobs to do and more people to share the work would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to mail or email me if you have ideas.

If you haven’t sent in your registration fee to your country rep, please do so as soon as possible. The more advance money the committee in Ireland has, the easier it is for them to make the arrangements necessary. You can find all of the information in the March newsletter.
