The recording of today's webinar, "Finding Mob: Researching Indigenous Australian Family History" by Benjamin Hollister is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

Government Policy in Australia, particularly from Federation until the 1980s, meant that many Australians with indigenous roots have lost connection with family and community. Between adoption, state foster care, missions, hiding ethnicity, and relocation, it is often difficult to know where to start and haw to analyse records. This webinar will present how to start your research, looking at repositories, institutions, and community records that will assist, both indigenous specific and general, in compiling a genealogy or family history.

The Madness of ‘Mc’ Surnames - free webinar replay by Carol Baxter now available to view for limited time

The Madness of ‘Mc’ Surnames - free webinar replay by Carol Baxter now available to view for limited time

The recording of today's webinar, "The Madness of ‘Mc’ Surnames" by Carol Baxter is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

If you have already worked out that ‘Mc’ and ‘Mac’ surnames are the most complicated British surnames, you must listen to this webinar. And if you haven’t already worked this out, you must absolutely listen to this webinar. ‘Mc’ surnames are double the trouble because they can suffer distortions at the beginning, middle and end of the ‘Mc’ prefix as well as at the beginning, middle and end of the rest of the surname, the root word. Sound glides are a particular problem, in which the ‘k’ sound at the end of the ‘Mc’ prefix distorts the first letter of the root word (e.g. McCue/McKew/McHugh, McLachlan/McGloughlan). Transcription errors can also produce a non-‘Mc’ surname (e.g. Mackever/Markever) which can prove a trap for the unwary. This seminar will help you keep you sane when you encounter the complexities of these mad Scottish-origin surnames.
