Whoa, Claire, I am actually going to be in Galena soon, as part of a genealogical jaunt, and it is not only me, but a passel of distant cousins that I have yet to meet in person. Seems our collective great great great grandparents sailed from Liverpool to New Orleans, paddled up the river and spent their first winter on US soil in Galena. So will be in town for a photo op. The following year they moved up across the border and finally settled in Grant and Iowa Counties Wisconsin, so the get together will mainly be in that area. Frankly I had not made the connection about Galena until this post.
By the way, I vote for The Z. Have always been partial to the letter Z
