McCoy Family Reunion 2020

Bairnsdale, Sunday April 5, 2020

Did you know it’s 37 years since we had the last major Family Reunion – on January 31, 1982. The organisers were Jock McCoy, Beth McCoy and Una Reid.

January 31, 1982. Who can you recognise?

Let’s be clear: we aren’t all McCoy’s now, but we started with that name. Well it started out as McCoid but the colonial (English) administrators translated that as McCoy. Like they did in America and Ireland. In Scotland it became McKay.

So who are the descendants now? Fregon, Weston, Roth, Soutter, Wilson, Russell, McPherson, Rebbechi, Reid, Duggan, Williams, Walker, Yeung, and many more we’ll happily add to the list.

So, we think it’s about time we held the next reunion.  Bairnsdale, Sunday April 5, 2020

  • We’d like to meet up with our previous generation before they disappear
  • We’d like an opportunity for next generations to connect (the under 50s)
  • We’d make an attempt to consolidate the family history
  • It might just be a great opportunity ‘To get together and talk s**t’. We’re McCoy’s after all.
