Mamie McCubbins Collection

Title

Mamie McCubbins Collection

Description

In 1954, the research papers of Mrs. Mamie (Mary Louisa) Gaskill McCubbins were acquired by the Rowan Public Library. Over the years, her research files have proved invaluable in genealogical researching. The History Room is currently working on making this material available online. The files are identified by surname and are often a collection of various spellings of last name or related surnames – Abbot/Abot/Abott/Ebert for example may all be in the surname folder identified as Abbott. These digitized files are searchable to a great extent, however, many are handwritten and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) does not always readily identify handwritten characters. Please search each page of a folder so that no clues are overlooked. Mrs. McCubbins utilized every scrap of paper available to her and notes can be written sideways along the margin of the pages and occasionally information about a seemingly unrelated surname will be found amongst the pages of a specific folder. Many families form intimate connections over time and research into a related surname can cast light on the history of another family – please check the McCubbins Index for potentially interconnected families. Mrs. McCubbins gleaned her information from county records, correspondence, maps and oral histories. The materials can often guide research to other important records that may also be available at the History Room.
