Welcome!   Fáilte!
Congratulations Mary Wickersham!  
The Beth Mullinax Award was presented to Mary Wickersham on December 8, 2018 for her dedicated and outstanding service in support of Irish Genealogical Society International over the course of many years.  This service award was first presented in 2007 to Beth Mullinax in recognition of her tremendous work throughout the years. Hence, the award was named for Beth Mullinax.  Other recipients of the Beth Mullinax Award are: Diane Lovrencevic 2009, Ann Eccles 2014, Robert Zimmerman 2016.  The Beth Mullinax Award plaque was lost during the library move from the South St. Paul location to Mendota Heights. We thought it would turn up eventually, but that was not to be.  Kay Swanson, board member, very generously contributed the replacement. Thank you Kay!
