Subject: Re: McAtee
In a message dated 97-05-05 19:05:57 EDT, you write:
Mac = Mc = M'; no real difference.
Capitalizing the root name after the Mac was also optional/variable.
Saw your message regarding the Mac, Mc, M' and didn't realize there is no
difference. I had always thought the Mac = Scot, M' and Mc=Irish. I'm sure
I picked this up from various research and surname origin books.
Would you please elaborate on this subject?
