General Information on the List:

*

To subscribe to the McCloskey Surname list in mail mode, send an email to:

MCCLOSKEY-request@rootsweb.com

A subject line is okay, but not necessary. Do not use html or a signature line in your email. The body of the message should contain the single word "subscribe", but without the quotes:

SUBSCRIBE

By subscribing in mail mode, you will receive each message as it is sent. After you subscribe, you will receive a welcome message with all necessary instructions.

*

To subscribe to the McCloskey Surname list in digest mode, send an email to:

MCCLOSKEY-D-request@rootsweb.com

A subject line is okay, but not necessary. Do not use html or a signature line in your email. The body of the message should contain the single word "subscribe", but without the quotes:

SUBSCRIBE

By subscribing in digest mode, you will receive messages in a group at periodic intervals. After you subscribe, you will receive a welcome message with all necessary instructions.

*

To send messages to the McCLOSKEY list, no matter whether you are subscribed in mail mode or digest mode, use the following address:

MCCLOSKEY@rootsweb.com

You must turn off html before you send your message, as Rootsweb does not accept messages in html -- they will be returned to you without going to the list. If you find that you have a problem sending messages to the list, there are two things to check. First, check that you are using the proper address. DO NOT send messages intended for the list to McCLOSKEY-L-request; you must use McCLOSKEY-L@rootsweb.com instead. Second, check to see that the e-mail address under which you subscribed to the list is the same e-mail address from which you are trying to send your message. The use of aliases is one possible cause for problems experienced in sending messages.

Contact the Listowner:

I am the listowner for the McCLOSKEY-L and McCLOSKEY-D surname lists. My name is Mary D. Taffet, and you may contact me at any time for help should you need it. My e-mail address is mdtaffet@twcny.rr.com. I cannot promise an immediate answer, but I can promise an answer within a day or two.

My lineage:

Archibald McClosky & Mary Kelly/Skelly > Delia McClosky & Frank Bemis Dresser (my McClosky line ends here, but my Dresser line continues)

I learned on 08/25/2004 from a 1938 obituary for one of Archibald's daugthers that Archibald McClosky was "a cousin" to Cardinal McCloskey, though the exact connection was never stated.

Origin of the McCLOSKEY family:

The McCloskey family comes from Ireland. Most McCloskey's lived in Derry, primarily in Dungiven, but also in Londonderry.

For a thorough history of the origin on the McCloskey family in Ireland, take a look at McCloskey Irish history on The McCloskey Clan website:

Surname Variants:

A surname variant is one where the name is spelled differently but nevertheless refers to the same family. In some cases variants exist because of errors made by persons transcribing handwritten records (I have seen members of the same family referred to variously as McCLOSKEY, McCLOSKY, McCLUSKEY and McCLUSKY). In some cases variants exist because census takers or other persons wrote a name the way it sounded, rather than the way it should be spelled (I don't have any examples myself, but I know it happened). Lastly, surname variants exist because people, from time to time, choose to change the way their name is spelled (This must have happened in my own line, because all lines were originally McCLOSKEY, but our line in Canada is known most often as McCLOSKY).

Known variants of the McCLOSKEY surname include (in alphabetical order):

If you know of other surname variants, please send them to me at mdtaffet@twcny.rr.com, with an indication of the circumstances under which they appeared.
