I am beginning my MacRae research with this query. My Pappy (grandpa) Duncan MacRae b. 1885 Sanachan Loch Kishorn ran away to sea aged 16 and thus our family was founded in Sydney Australia. His father was John McRae b.abt 1847 Achintraid and his mother Isabella MacRae b.1855 Ardarroch. Confusion because of the same last names! The story goes that John MacRae (fisherman)died at sea sometime after 1901. Anybody out there who may know something about this Loch Carron family and/or can tell me if death certificates were issued for "missing at sea"? I plan to come to the Highlands and spend some time near Achintraid next year and by then I hope to have some concrete information on my MacRae family.
