I met Alison Causten in Belfast some years
ago. It was a total fluke. I had been following her postings
on the Armagh list serve for a year or so and when I signed in
at the front desk at PRONI, I noticed that her name was a few
lines above mine. I checked out the
dozen or so patrons and decided on the most likely candidate.
It proved to be Alison herself. After our day of research,
we went out for dinner and a bottle of wine and had a grand old
yakadoodle. Her web site, which she assembled after this chance
meeting, is full of all kinds of thoroughly documented materials.
One future point of connetcion for us is likely to be along the
GILMORE line - but we have yet to nail that one down.
