Hello! I am a social worker from just outside of Chicago, Illinois! I have recently become interested in researching my family history, and luckily have some amazing sources put together by other members of my family. However, there are a few gaps in our information that I would love to fill in.
Right now, I am looking into my mother's paternal grandmother. She descends from John James McGaw (born c. 1607) who moved from Scotland to Ireland in 1645. The next known person on the family tree is John McGaw (b. 1745), meaning there is a gap of a couple generations there. It is my goal to fill in that gap!
