Are you interested in finding out more about your family history? Do you know your ancestors from three, four generations back or more? Would you like to talk to others with the same surname or variations thereof that might be looking for the same information as you?
Then you can join with thousands of Cargill's/Cargile's by subscribing to this newsletter for $20 per year to cover expense for printing, postage, and maintenance of the web site. You will be able to chat with others, find help in your research with a professional genealogist on board. The newsletter will be published quarterly (four times a year). It will have a Letters to the Editor, in-depth articles about these families, and you will be participating along with us.
I have done extensive research on the Cargill/Cargile surname. I am a professional writer by trade. I was a contributor to the book, "Cargill/Cargill/Cargal of the South and Southwest," compiled by Florence B. Myers, San Antonio, TX, copyrighted 1997. I have written numerous historical articles for The Highlander, now the Scottish Journal. I am also vice-president/editor of the Clan Drummond Society of North America. (See link). You can also find me at familtreemaker (link)
Plans are also underway to hold a Family Reunion some time before the year 2,000. Date and location are being discussed amongst several people. Many people with our surname live in Alabama, Texas, California, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Florida, Oklahoma, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana, Illinois, Mississippi, Canada, Nova Scotia, and other parts of the world.
I hope you will join us in making our new clan and newsletter a success. We will discuss topics I know will help in your individual research.
