McCallroots is organized around the ancestors of John Brierly McCall and of Andrea Thompson McCall.

John's paternal grandparents were McCalls (Argyllshire, Scotland to County Antrim, Ireland, to Virginia, to Missouri) and Campbells (Argyllshire, Scotland to upstate New York). His maternal grandparents were Warrens (England to Massachusetts in 1630) and Brierlys (Lancashire, England to Massachusetts in 1841).

Andrea's paternal grandparents were Thompsons (Scotland to South Carolina to Georgia) and Woods (? to South Carolina to Georgia). Her maternal grandparents were Greers - descended from Robert the Bruce - (Dumfrieshire, Scotland to Virginia to Texas) and Huffstutlers (Switzerland to Maryland to Alabama to Texas).
