Group Description

This is a chat list for Kithcarts and Cathcarts to use to help each other find out about their history and ancestors. I have a website set up at www.kithcartclan.8k.com which is a compilation of information gathered from cousins all over the U.S., Ireland and Scotland. I have a family tree set up at ancestry.com, too.

We have confirmation from the DAR that John Kithcart, born 1737 County Antrim, Ireland was originally a Cathcart, but the name was changed when it was written down incorrectly on a deed in Pennsylvania. So Kithcarts, you were probably Cathcarts at one time. To make things more complicated, during a trip to County Antrim, Ireland to the geneology library there, I found lands that were once leased by Kithcarts. Also, there was a John Cathcart, b 1737 County Antrim, Ireland who traveled on a different ship on a different date to the U.S.

Feel free to post photos of relatives in the photo section, files, etc. here for all of us to share. Many hands make light work, they say! I've spent the past ten years working on family genealogy and it is fascinating work, but takes a lot of time! I am also writing a book on the Kithcarts so if you have any information to share I'd really appreciate it!

We are planning a Kithcart/Cathcart family reunion in 2012 in Kansas City and I hope you can attend and bring your family tree, photos, etc.!
