I have been trying to identify my Macra family for many years with no success to date.
What I know for sure is, Donald Macrae m. Anne Macrae They had only one child that I know of so far. Margaret Macrae b. b. Kintail 1834
Margaret left for Edinburgh in her early teens as far as I can make out
In 1853 she gave birth to a daughter at Royal Maternity Hospital Edinburgh. I have a record of the birth and her stay there. She stated her parents were both deceased. Donald was a Farm Servant. Also she spoke Gaelic. This information carries on during her life.
I have searched S.P. inside out, all the Highland Libraries and FHS' and nothing.
Trouble I find with the Macrae's, they all seemed to marry their cousins. Then they go through the naming pattern exactly so you finish up with dozens of family all with more or less the same job, name. and children all ditto ditto. There seems no way one can win here.
