This site is dedicated to all McCubbins of any spelling all over the world.
We are a non-profit group sponsored and founded by James & Lorna McCubbin. Our co-founder is Penny McColm of Australia, grandaughter of Frederick McCubbin, The Artist. Our chairperson is Kathy McCubbing Hopkins. The McCubbin Family History Association revolves around co-ordinators who have research responsibility for geographic areas. Their job is to collect, index and chart the information that we get from members and other genealogical sources. Our aim is to co-ordinate your research with others working on the same line. For your research queries email Penny for Australian interests, Ronald ‘Rick’ for American interests, Lynne for Ayrshire and Kathy or Lorna at [email protected] for the rest of the world.
