Thankyou Margaret:)I am in Australia where my 3rd great grandfather changed his surname from Rea to Rae. I can only go back as far as 1759 with my scotland Rea's whom were from Dundee and Kirriemuir. I'm finding it really hard to find kin or any further information but im sure im not alone. I am really curious where my particular line of Rea's come from. I had a dna test which shows ancient origins from a small seaside village in Norway, thats pretty exciting!
