My name is Cindy McCabe . My current tree is McCabe2013. I am loving the newest 7.0 version of My Heritage, and the transfer of my tree data was easy. This site is growing from DAR research from my aunt Bobbie Hollingsworth nee Clark (Texas), as well as genealogy records from my grandparents Owen McCabe and Julia Kappus (MI, IL).
Our paternal line McCabe immigrated circa 1850 to Pennsylvania from Scotland and Ireland. Ancestors then settled in Charlevoix, MI before moving to the Chicago, IL area. The paternal DNA Haplogroup is R1b1b2a1a2f*, which originates in northern Ireland/Scotland.
Our maternal line dates back to colonial times. The Maternal DNA Haplogroup is U5b2c and includes last names McCabe, Clark, Shockley, Taylor, Schooling, Wormington, Hawley, Steele, Strong, Bracy, Collyer, Sanford and Ann Adams (1624-1682).
To date, I have used (1) Ancestry Library Edition, available only at your public library,and (2) Heritage Quest On-Line (free through our library), (3) World Vital Records, and (4) SuperSearch to fill in the blanks and document events. Focus is on building a well-documented tree of direct ancestors to immigration to America.
This month I am "cleaning up" the membership list (deleting all who have not visited recently), and have temporarily stopped the newsletters.
