Re: McCafferty family in Scotland
I read your older post on the McCafferty Genforum list, and hope that you are still a member/reader of it.As someone who lives 'across the pond' from many McCafferty researchers, and someone who also has a living male McCafferty relative, you hold the possibility of both finding kin (and maybe some answers for yourself) and establishing your family's genetic genealogy line.That is, if your Uncle Harry or any of the there male McCaffertys in your family would participate in a McCafferty genetic genealogy DNA study.
Is there a possibility that he might do so?if you want to learn more about genetic genealogy, there is probably a McCafferty DNA study at:
Or, you can read abut a special genetic genealogy project where McCaffertys have participated:
I --and many others--hope that you will ask your uncle, or another male McCafferty in your family, to participate.So many people research this surname in America, with little hope of ever connecting it to McCaffertys elsewhere.Your family may be the link that helps all of us, including you.
Many thanks, and very best wishes,
PSMy great-great-great-grandmother was Nancy R. McCafferty, daughter of James Green McCafferty and his wife, Mary, whose family name we do not know.
