The Robert McKay Clan Newsletter

This Newsletter serves the entire family of Robert Mackay Sr. and some related families. It includes coverage of the Robert McKay Clan Reunion held annually in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and the Collett-McKay Picnic held annually in northwestern Clinton County, Ohio. It reports on events and happenings submitted by family members and also contains genealogical information and queries.

It also covers events surrounding historic Old Bethel Baptist Church in southern Clarke County, Virginia and also the Steer Genealogy and other related families.

This Newsletter was originally founded by Wallace E. Shipp back in 1965. Wallace retired from editing the family Newsletter in 2003.

The Newsletter volunteer staff is now made up of three people listed below:
