Hello Todd: Now that I know you are in Afhanistan.....certainly one ofa long line of the famous Mackay warriors of yester year both for the Clan and its chief, to service in the ethnic, quasi-religious wars in Germany wherein many, many of our clansmen fought, I truly wish you well in completing your tour with our armed forces.
I know Paul Key will be delighted to be in touch with you and give you many pointers about researching your family.
I have written regularly to a 38 year old National Guardsman who has just completed 13 months in Kabul investigating white collar crime or its equivalent. From Rhodes Island, he volunteered immediately before his unit was activated because any openning in Kabul was there. His unit, when activated, went to a more rural province. We certainly shared a great deal in my weekly correspondence with him. If you will contact me at my email address, I should be willing to pursue your family research further. Cordially, Don McGee.
