A vote of thanks was given for the committee that made all arrangements for the location and the dinner.

Peter gave us more interesting data on genealogy and spoke of the large addition he added to the huge genealogy chart he has made up through the years.  It is a work of art and Iím sure not found in many family records.

Dean Mayhew spoke of different places available to get Kalloch names etc. as well as the records he hopes to get from England.  He has done extensive research all winter on David Kalloch, who is listed with Finley Kalloch.  He came to these parts about the same tame - moved to Pa.  No results on the research, he has vanished into thin air, no record of him anywhere.  Dean spoke of an index on micro film of about 65 million names - about 6 pages from the year 1576 to yr. 1900.  He stated that he could possibly get an answer from the Armorial College of Arms in London, England and the cost would be $120.00.  It is possible that he might not come up with any definite answer on the correct coat of arms.  Dean asked if there were any objections to his following this up, which there was none.  Some maps of Central Scotland were on display that Dean had drawn up and said it was the location where many Kallochs were.

The meeting adjourned and many took advantage of looking at records, asking questions and adding to Peterís genealogical collection that were in the building at the entrance.

Hazel Hills, Sec.
