Mocavo Announces New Search Engine


Introducing: Mocavo.co.uk
by mocavo
Today we’re thrilled to launch Mocavo.co.uk – a United Kingdom version of Mocavo that will search websites, blogs, records and content specifically from, or discussing, English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh decent.
While Mocavo.com searches sites and blogs from around the world, and will continue to do so, Mocavo.co.uk will focus specifically on the United Kingdom, giving those who wish to narrow their search to that region the ability to do just that.
So if you descend from UK families, be sure to check out our newest addition to the Mocavo search family. As always, we look forward to your feedback, which helps make our services that much better for your research. You can let us know your thoughts at support@mocavo.com or on our Facebook page. Cheers!

Sad to Report

It is with great sadness that I am reporting the passing of CJA President, Dr. Stephen Johnston on Sunday 9/18 of Pancreatic Cancer. He died at home peacefully and surrounded by family. Members of CJA and the Clan communities send their sympathy to his wife Pat and daughter Amy.  He was a true "Southern gentleman" that will be missed by all who had the opportunity to know him.

Y-DNA Third Party Uploads - Family Tree DNA

Announcement by Family Tree DNA


We are pleased to announce the launch of a new feature we hope will benefit your projects: Y-DNA "Third Party" uploads.
This will allow for the upload of 33 and 46-marker Y-DNA test results from Ancestry, GeneTree and Sorensen's SMGF. This was a natural development since the necessary tools were created to import the DNA Heritage database after they ceased operations. While the DNA Heritage transfer is free of charge as a result of that acquisition, we will be charging a nominal fee of $19 per person to import third party results into Family Tree DNA. This $19 fee will be credited to customers who order upgrades or add-ons.
For an additional $39, customers who transfer their third party results will also have additional markers tested so that they can receive matches to Family Tree DNA's 25 or 37-marker level, ancestral origins, and other features of the personal page.
Please forward the following link to those who may be interested in ordering the Third Party transfer:

Mary Johnston, Author - 1870-1915

She was born into one of the most influential families of Virginia, cousin to Generals Johnston and Pickett, related to Patrick Henry, James Madison and officers in all of Virginia’s wars. An aristocrat, she helped found the United Daughters of the Confederacy, yet had a very public feud with Stonewall Jackson’s widow. Her books were hugely successful, yet politics destroyed her career and her name and reputation faded into the mists of her Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Devil's Beef Tub

The Devil’s Beef Tub is a deep, hollow in the hills north of the Scottish town of Moffat. Forming the 500-foot deep hollow are four hills, Great Hill, Peat Knowe, Annanhead Hill, and Ericstane Hill. The name is derived from its use by Border Rievers to hide stolen cattle (beef) and the chief users of the hollow - the Johnstone clan whose enemies referred to as “devils”.

In his novel, Redgauntlet, author Sir Walter Scott said, “It looks as if four hills were laying their heads together, to shut out daylight from the dark hollow space between them. A d----d deep, black, blackguard-looking abyss of a hole it is.”

National Tartan Day

Are you ready to show your pride in your Scottish heritage.  April 6th is National Tartan Day in the United States.  To see if there is a celebration scheduled in your area, check out the website http://www.tartanday.org/.  Even if there is no celebration scheduled for your area of the country, wear a bit of tartan on that day.  I think you'll be surprised at the response you will receive from others you meet.  Who knows, you may even meet a fellow clansman!

Lawrence Scottish Fest (Kansas)

Spent a nice evening celebrating Robert Burns and Tartan Day.  Lawrence, KS has moved their Robert Burns celebration from its usually unpredictable weather night in January to a more hospitable day in April that corresponds to Tartan Week.  There were pipers, musicians playing Scottish tunes and good eats from a local bakery.  This was their "15th annual celebration of traditional & contemporary Scottish music & culture".  I always enjoy this laid back evening of celebration and am pleased that it has moved to a more hospitable time of the year.  Now there will be less chance of forgoing the event because of icing roads! 

Lots of clips from past events can be found at their website http://www.lawrencescots.org/

Social Security Card Facts

A.  Social Secutiry cards were never intended to be identification cards. 

B.  Prior to November 1971, all Social Security cards and numbers were assigned using the information an individual provided.  Just statement of fact; no proof necessary. 

C.  After 1971, anyone age 55 and over applying for a card for the first time was required to submit evidence of their identity. 

D.  Beginning with April 1974, all applicants age 18 and over had to prove identity, age and citizenship.

E.   In 1978 this requirement was expanded to all applicants with two forms of evidence generally being required.  Documents most often presented - a birth certificate, a driver's license, marriage and divorce documents. 

F.  Today, the Enumeration at Birth system automates the whole process by letting hospitals provide photocopied birth certificates on the behalf of new parents.
