Surnames: Mekuriya, McCray
My Grandmother told me her father was from Ethiopia. His name was Ezekiel "Zeke" McCray which is probably a mispronounciation of the name Mekuriya. He was born in 1886, he died in 1966 in m Miss.USA. I've been told that many Etiopians left their country on missionary ships to Europe and the USA. I also understand that these Ethipians stayed and bagan families put continued to stay in touch with relatives back home by telegraph at the post office. If any one has any information how I could trace my roots in Ethiopia please feel free to email me at
