Introducing Jim McAdoo
The McAdoo clan is of hearty Irish working class stock migrating to America in the 1850s. The fruits of Jim’s research can be seen at the McAdoo website:
I recommend it to anyone interested in genealogical studies.
Jim’s educational background includes Logan Elementary, Cooke Junior High and, of course, Central High. Acquiring a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Rutgers University and a Masters degree beyond that provided the appropriate background for an impressive career working, advising and consulting public and private companies.
Jim and his wife will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary this September. Ginnie is also from Germantown and grew up on E. Stafford Street.
Jim shares our love of Germantown and provides us with a cute story about the “bombing” of Bringhurst Street during World War II. We hope Jim will share some of his other work with us on a regular basis. So, without further ado I give you Jim McAdoo.
