A Branch of a Tree: A McGee Family in History
The author tracks his Scots-Irish roots from the Irish Sea kingdom of Dal Riata in the 500's to McGee's Town (Balmaghie), Scotland in the 900's and on to McGee's, Colorado in the 1880's. He writes of his ancestors as they immigrate to America, participate in the Westward Movement, fight in the Civil War, experience the gold rushes of Colorado, the Great Depression, World War II and more recent events. The impact of these events on one family and its descendents is the story of America. History sings to us from the pages of this book.

Idiots like this shouldn't be allowed to write books. This man scarcely knows what he's talking about, like most Americans who attempt to undertake to do their own geneology. the source references are in dispute with eachother, which the author makes no comment about, but obliviously continues on using to make his points. The exposition is basically written on bias with no effort to examine all the available facts. It is clear that the author had little knowledge to begin with when he began his incomplete study of this subject.
