Welcome to my genealogy blog. My name is Gina, and recently I was bit by the genealogy bug. My little side project has become a bit of an obsession. Being new to this whole research thing, I soon found myself swamped with a ton of information and began to drown. So the purpose of this blog is to collect my thoughts in some sort of organized fashion and be able to present them in some organized way to anyone who may be looking.

This blog will mainly be about my branch of the McRobie clan.  My family begins with William McRobie (1761-1835) after he settled in Garrett County, Maryland. This is the earliest known ancestor I’ve been able to find, so the focus will be mostly on his descendants.

My research on this blog begins with William’s oldest son, John William, who is my direct ancestor.  Eventually William’s other children and their families will follow suit.

While this blog is mainly just a personal forum for me to track my progress, I welcome any and all researchers. I am willing to share any information, and I love to get anything that may help me with my research! Comments and emails are encouraged!

I have created a new email address specifically for this project, so please send all emails to: <a href=”mailto:mcrobiefamilytree@gmail.com”>McRobieFamilyTree@gmail.com</a>.
