Hello all!

I've been very frustrated in my family tree search... I can't seem to get any further back than my great-great-grandfather! sad.gif

I am only interested in my maternal tree, which is Clan McKay. My great-great-grandfather was Richard Walter McKay. My great-grandfather was Warren Lee McKay and my grandfather was Joseph Lewis McKay, all from the Meherrin area of Virginia. My internet searches have turned up nothing and none of my living relatives seem to have any additional info!

Frustrating to say the least!

The clan McKay is very interesting. Supposedly, it is the only clan that is able to trace its history all the way back to Adam and Eve!

Mottos are:
Latin: Manu Forti (With a Strong Hand)
Gaelic: Bi Tren (Be Valiant or Be True)
War Cry: Bratach Bhn Clann Aoidh! (The White Banner of MacKay!)

You can go back a generation further than I can. Of my Scots-Irish heritage, I can only go as far back as my great-grandparents. My Great-Grandpa & Great-Grandma Maxwell were both orphans who were later adopted. I do know that my Great-Grandma's maiden name was McLoughlin.

My maternal side is Irish. I, too am at a brick wall in my research.
My Great Grandfather was Edward Condon from County Cork. My Great Grandmother was Margaret McCafferty from County Fermanagh, Enneskilin, N. Ireland. And that's as far as I can go. I can't find birth, marriage or death records. Can't find the emigration records. It's so frustrating! disgust.gif
On my Dad's side I've hired someone to do research because he was adopted in 1929 and I can't get anything on my own.

Tripsmom, try this site. www.proninics.gov.uk if this does not work you may have to put hppt/proninics.gov.uk This site is records in Northern Ireland. You will have to explore the site. Good Luck, I have traced my family back to Londonderry in Northern Ireland. Most Southerners are of Gaelic ancestry I could on and on about my family. Land grants in North Carolina given during the French and Indian Wars of 1755. I just love finding my long ago family.

Most of my family came from North Carolina too.............the Asheville area. Still have relatives living there to this day. I lived there for two years! Beautiful country and rich in history. I guess a lot of Engish, Scots and Irish came to North Carolina, from what I hear. I have all that ancestry in me..............so I am told. Can prove the English and the Irish. so far still working on the Scots.....but these stumbling blocks are getting on my nerves! cool.gif

What're your clan affiliations, be it through birth or marriage?

Mine are the Clan Maxwell and Clan MacLachlan.

As indicated in my signature and avatar, my formal affiliation is with Clan Donald USA, based on my direct paternal lineage. I could also make a colorable claim to ancestors in many other clans--at least some of have no current chief. Some of the highland clans and lowland families to which I could claim membership by descent include Campbell, Frazier, McCulloch, Hogg, and Livingston.

Well from what I am told about our Scots heritage, we have both Curries and Allisons which I am told makes them both MacPherson clans.........if they were indeed part of a clan.

I have also Taylors in my family which I really need to check out which clan they would supposedly come from. I thought Cameron, but I may be wrong. unsure.gif

Clan MacKay here! That was my mother's maiden name, but I have been unable to track my family back more than 3 generations. sad.gif I would like to at least track back far enough to find out when my ancestors immigrated to America!

I am a McCullough.

The first McCullough listed, it turns out, was the King of Scotland right after MacBeth (Lulach in 1057). Of course, he only lasted six months, but you can't have everything. The most common spelling of McCullough in Scotland was MacCulloch. It seems that the MacCullochs were spread out all over the place. They are listed as septs to the clans of MacDougall, Ross, Munroe, and Gunn, as well as living in Galloway. If you look at a map of Scotland you will see that these clans are roughly spread along the "Great Rift" going from the Irish Sea, through Loch Ness and Inverness to the North Sea. Galloway, of course is in southern Scotland. The coat of arms is McCullough of Myerton which is in Galloway.

Another thought is is that the McColloch/McCullough surname can be traced back to Sir Cullo O'Neil in early 14th century Scotland. The family was originally given control of the Myreton, Ardwell, and other portions of the Galloway District around 1318. Subsequent to Sir Cullo O'Neil, the family name became McCullo which appears to be the root name for all of surname variations.

Supposedly my line left the Lowlands in the early 1600's and moved to northeast Ireland (Ulster) during the 'plantation' times, and then to America in the early 1700's, where we settled along the southern US frontier. We made our way down from Virginia to the Carolinas to Georgia (east of what would become Atlanta).

Then again, maybe we simply came from aliens. ph34r.gif
