Can't Find the "Mc" Entries?

In some handwritten indexes to local county records, the entries for those names beginning with "Mc" or "Mac" may be filed in a separate section after all the "M" entries. So if it looks like the whole county didn't have one Mc or Mac family, look at the "end" of the "M" names to see if they are there. Sometimes they get put at the front too. It can vary but just remember that in some indexes those names may have their own separate section.
