McKay Family Reunion

November 14th, 2006
The Clan MacKay

A few days ago we drove to Victoria for the McKay family reunion or a close approximation. This was my dad’s dad’s side of the family. Besides my mom and my sister I only had met one person who was at the house prior to November 5th, 2006.

It was a long drive and we stayed longer than most. I used the timer on my camera to take the official photo. I also got tasked with making a digital online version of the family tree. I did things a bit different this time. I used Excel and exported the HTML which was ugly but at least viewable in a web browser. Eventually there are plans to have pictures of everyone when you click on their name. Thankfully the family tree isn’t that big and no one was worried too much over the branches we didn’t know and didn’t attend.

    Looking at your family tree- Andrew McKay & Janet Black are also part of my family history- Andrew’s sister Margaret Taylor McKay married Malcolm McPhee in Parkhead, Lanark, Scotland.Have traced other siblings to Canada

  • I’ve done a much bigger family tree. I’ll have to fire up Reunion to see if I have that connection. I bought the Book of McKay, the second book entitled that, it must be no longer copyright, or it was just reprinted. I was able to trace further back in other branches, I have some more recent posts on my family’s genealogy.
