Clan Macrae Newsletter
Newsletter Home Page
The Macraes were a small but important clan in the district of Kintail, in the south-west of the county of Ross, Scotland, where they are said to have settled in the fourteenth century, under the chieftanship of the Barons Mackenzie of Kintail.
The Clan Macrae Newsletter is for the descendants of Fionnla Dubh Mac Gillechriosd (gen 1) 1 -- Black Finlay -- the founder of the Clan Macrae of Kintail, who lived circa 1416. Published monthly by Graeme McRae since June, 2003, its purpose is to share the genealogy of our family tree with one another. I encourage emails from my readers containing genealogies and stories about our family, which I will publish in future issues, along with legends lifted straight out of the Clan Macrae Book 2 , published in 1899 (its copyright has expired, so plagiarism is legal).
