Presenting with Malachy was Jane Kenamore, of Kenamore and Klinkow, who reported on a project where she consulted on the creation of a central repository for four provinces of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. The final panelist was Sister Thomas More Daily, OSU, of the Ursuline Archives, Central Province, USA. She explained that the organizational structure of her congregation (multiple provinces, as well as independent houses) complicated any plans they might make to centralize and consolidate the archives. Nevertheless, the Ursulines, like many other congregations, are undaunted in the mission to preserve their history.
