Hi Everyone.

I'm trying to track down some ancestors of mine. I haven't got too many details, but if anyone can shed a bit of light on this, then please let me know. Here's what I've got:

Roderick A (possibly Albert or Arthur) McRae (changed spelling to MacRae later)
Married to Nell (don't know if this is short for something) McRae (nee Seath)
Immigrated to Australia in 1924 with 3 children Don (Donald?) Ian and Barb (Barbara?).
Later in Australia had another son Roderick John born in 1928 (my Grandfather).

I am having difficulty getting either shipping/passenger details (they came in to NSW most likely Sydney) or Birth/Marriage details for Roderick &/or Nell in Scotland.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The following replies have been posted in response to the above query. They are sorted chronologically according to the time of receipt, with the most recent at the end of the page.
Just a further note, I believe that I may have found the birthplace of Roderick through a search of another site. Any extra info would be appreciated. Place: Motherwell in 1898 (seems to fit but may not be correct).

Hello Daniel

I had afew spare credits on Scotlandspeople and found the following. Hope it is of some help.

Roderick Albert McRae married Helen Welsh Seath in 1915 in Auchterderran Fife in the Free Church of Scotland.

His age is given as 26 making his birth C1889
Helen's age looks like 24 or it may be 21 her birth would be C 1901

His parents are Donald McRae and Marion Baxter?
Her parents are John Seath & Helen Welsh.

You should be ablt to find their births on SP.

Good luck with you search.

Frances MacRae
