I provided links to a couple that I see advertised the most. This is not an endorsement of either one just what I have seen or personally used. Just compare each one for you and see what’s best for you.
There are a number of geneology DNA kits. They all do about the same thing or the basic thing from what I can see. They break down where your DNA might be related too based on region. Some do more things and some do less. You would just have to compare them all and see what’s best for you and for hat you are looking to do. Personally, I did the Ancestry.com.
They vary in price. Some range from $80-200. Depends on a lot of factors.
DNA results provided by Ancestry.com. I always thought it would be cool to find out roughly where my ancestors were from.
Clan Mackey has posted travel information for site seeing. Last time I have been to Great Britain was high school and we were mainly in London. Seeing these pictures of Scotland make me want to go back.One day I will be ale to get back there!
I think Geneology helps people get in interested in history and travel. For me I got into history because I was fortunate enough to travel when I was young. It made me curious about who lived in the places I was visiting and what life was really like. With traveling it made me curious if my ancestors had been through there (guessing most people back in the 18th and 19th century did not visit the Grand Canyon).
David McKee, who was born in Scotland in 1715, came to the American colonies with his family to escape religious persecution both in Scotland and in Ireland. The McKee family came to America in search of a “church without a bishop and a state without a king.”
John McKee, son of David, was actually credited with the founding of this village in the new world which lay at the confluence of the Youghiogheny and Monongahela rivers. Although the family did some farming, and made some barrels of rum on the side, their actual living was made from operating a ferry on the two rivers, and carrying travelers back and forth over the river banks. Eventually the McKee family bought a good bit of land between the rivers, and the land became known as McKee’s Port (and later, simply as McKeesport.)
