Re: Currie / McVurich - please help

Has Wayne done his DNA test yet? I'm always looking for my connection to Curries. My ggg grandmother was Mary Currie (1794-1877) and her brother Donald Currie ( 1806-1877). Still looking for their parents and siblings. We believe their mother was a Sinclair.
Maybe we can find a relative in common.
Janice, if you look up Clan currie online, you can find out lots of info about the clan's origins.
Thank you, Sharee! The article Glynn shared mentions the anglicization of Scottish surnames in the 18th century. With Donald born abt 1760 that is a perfect fit. And thank you, Glynn, for the link to the article - a really interesting read. I've added Ivar to the tree and put this link on his page as well as Donald's. Excellent verification.
Thanks so much to both of you~
