Letter From Sarah

Sarah's letter to the 2019 reunion attendees:

After 38 years, I have decided it is time for me to step down as secretary-treasurer of The McCutchen Trace Association, and I did not accept the nomination for the position this year. This was not an easy decision for me to make, but I can no longer manage both the writing of articles for the newsletter and keeping up with dues and membership.

I can only do the membership/dues or write articles. I no longer have unlimited time to do both. I intend to keep writing for the newsletter, but not as much as I have in the past. I would like to finish the Ada Meek letters and I have a few other odds and ends, but this is where the McCutchen Trace Association needs help. Please help the newsletter by contributing articles, family genealogy, and other interesting McCutchen, -an, -eon, -in information/stories. This is the Association's newsletter. Please help support it and send your material to Charlie McCutchen, the editor.

David McCutchen of Dickson, Tennessee has graciously agreed to be the next secretary-treasurer. Please send all dues and address changes to him. Contact information for both Charlie and David are on the back of the newsletter.

It has been a privilege to serve The McCutchen Trace over the years. I have learned much history regarding the different McCutchen, -eon, -an, -in families. I have met long lost cousins and many wonderful people and have been to places I might never have gone because of the reunions. Thank you for your trust and support.

Please send all dues to David McCutchen (we currently do not have a paypal account)

Autosomal DNA

Autosomal DNA testing is the latest breakthrough in genetics and can be a useful tool in genealogy. In 2009, 23and Me launched their test dubbed “Relative Finder”. Following on their heals in 2010, Family Tree DNA launched “Family Finder” and in 2012, Ancestry launched “AncestryDNA” which was at the time more affordable solution. Since then prices have dropped and all three offer the test for $99.
