The information for this chart came from the U.S. Immigration Collection at Ancestry. You can find out where the majority of the Hallaway families were living before they immigrated to the U.S and learn where to focus your search for foreign records.
New video has been released showing the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of American teen Natalee Holloway in a Peruvian maximum-security prison he now calls home. Joran van der Sloot is serving a 28-year sentence for the murder of a business student. He is also suspected of killing Alabama teen Holloway, who disappeared while on a graduation trip to Aruba. Van der Sloot has not been charged with Holloway's murder. Her body has never been found. The new footage shows van der Sloot at the Challapalca Maximum Security Prison, a 15,700-feet altitude facility where he was sent after allegedly threatening a guard for confiscating his cellphone. He is shown being escorted by prison guards, seached and having his blood pressure taken.
An interpretive sign is attached to a bench on the top of Hallaway Hill. Formed from sediment deposited during the last ice age, these hills are part of the Alexandria Glacial Moraine and characterize the landscape of Maplewood State Park.
Tall, Dark, and Dead has a great blend of folklore/mythology that kept me listening to the end. There are witches, Vatican witch hunters, and vampires galore, but Hallaway offers a different take on Vampire lore that is fresh and intriguing. There are the "traditionally" made vampires, and then there is Sebastian. Walking in the daylight is not the only oddity about Sebastian either. While the story is interesting, the characters didn't really do it for me. The book was a decent listen that I did enjoy and would recommend to vampire fans, but unlike with some other series, I didn't have the desire to rush out and buy the second book. I'm not sure I will get around to reading the other Garnet Lacey books anytime soon. I am a huge fan of Ronconi as a narrator, and she did not disappoint here. She was actually the reason I picked up the book in the first place.
All-in-all a good listen.
