Mackey Family Reunion 2012!

The reunion was a great success. You can find here a reunion summary by David Mackey, as well as ordering information for a DVD of images, and the book The Long Road From Conestoga.

Family Resources

In response to inquiries about family books, additional copies of The Long Road From Conestoga (the 2008 edition) are available and can be ordered online. Go to the following site sanpetelegacyresearch.com and click on the Gift Shop tab. Also, many of you have asked about the outstanding presentation that Jeanne Mackay Jensen gave at the 2009 Mackey reunion about the Mackay('Mackey') clan in Scotland and Ireland. The presentation is available on CD and will hopefully be setup soon for order at that same site. Stay posted!

Mackey (MacAoidh) Family Genealogy :: Inquiries

Please let us know if any of you tie-in to this David Hamilton Mackey line or may have additional information on them. We can then put you in contact with Pamela Mackey Keller who submitted the following on June 3, 2010:

Thank you for the invitation to the Mackey Reunion.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend. I would appreciate it very much if I could continue to be included in all future correspondence regarding the Mackey extended families.

I would like more information on the Mackey DNA project.  My father is elderly and the last male of my Mackey line.

I would also like to submit information on my Mackey “brick wall” (David Hamilton Mackey) in the hopes that someone at the reunion will be able to provide more information, specifically where David was born in PA, siblings and names of his parents.   I have detailed as much information as I have been able to find below.  Let me know if it doesn’t print out OK and I will resend.
