Georgina, I was looking for some history, specifically photos of the Holy Family Academy in Beaverville, Illinois as I grew up there and still have relatives living in what remains of the town. In my search I learned of Operation Pedro Pan of which I knew nothing about. Eventually my search led me to you. My search has now expanded to include understanding more about Operation Pedro Pan and the Holy Family Academy's role. I have so many more questions. Would you be interested in corresponding with me?

Hi Georgina This site came up while I was searching for my old college roommate, Evita Milagros Maribona. She was living in Illinois and we attended St. Dominic's College in Saint Charles. She was living with a family in Elmwood Park, IL. When we left college in 1966/67 she was going to New York and was going to get married, I only met her husband to be once and I don't recall his name. If anyone has heard from her please give her my name and e-mail. I would love to talk to her again. Thank you

Georgina, I am George's daughter. I have a copy of the airport log page for the day you arrived which I need to send you. It took me a long time to find it, and now I can't find your mailing address. Please email me with a postal address and I will put the copy in the mail right away.

Hi Georgina, I don't know if you remember me but I think you and Tino are the ones I have known for many years (our daughters went to school together). I read in your story that you were under the care of Miguel Angel y Neida Quesada while at Florida City. I have known them for many years and if you and/or any other Pedro Pan who knew the Quesadas would like to reach them and do not have their current contact information, I can provide it. I am sure they would love to hear from you and others. Saludos para ti y Tino. Delfin

Hi Georgina! I remember you from Beaverville. That was a cold, scary, and lonely place. I used to visit the girls every now and then. I always wondered what had happened to that group so sometime ago I launched a seach and I found a few of you, Vivian & Galdys, Sarita, Carmelina. I'm still looking for Cuqui Roca. It is nice to knowing you made it. I think I have a picture of you sitting in the benches in front of the school. To give you a cue, I was in the military back then.
