I am Ian Macky [B.1.d.1.A.2], webmaster
of macky.net. This domain is used for email, personal web
sites, and information about the New Zealand branch of the Macky family.
Your Webmaster is
Small but Powerful
The bulk of this site is a transcription of the blue book which
was given out at the 1994 family reunion in New Zealand, itself an update
of the 2-part 1969 edition. I can't take any credit for the contents
of the blue book, that work was done by others: the history and causes
of migration were by Polly Macky [C.4.d]
in 1939; the family letters were transcribed by Helen Macky
[C.2.a.6]; the 1969 genealogy was prepared
by Keith O'Hara [D.1.b]; and the 1994 update
was by Mary Sherlock [C.2.a.5.D].
What I did do was turn the blue book into a web site, and now
I accept updates to the genealogy and keep the tables up to date.
Changes to the 1994 data are recorded in
this deltas page, and I wrote
this awk program to generate
the HTML genealogy pages. I'm also looking for original, historic
family photos or documents— I'd love to host scans of them here.
For descendents of the original James Macky,
I can offer the following free services:
