Greetings from John McRae in Bradenton, Florida.
Enquiry : My McRae ancestors are from Back, Isle of Lewis; descendants are still living there. At least one other McRae family, not known if related,was also there. Is there any information as to how the early ancestors, ca.1700s or earlier, came to Lewis?
