Dear Alex, My Mackays are from Portskerra, Sutherlandshire. Not too far from Thurso and perhaps Farr if I remember my map correctly. The only relation left is a MacDonald cousin. I am looking for the parents of Hughina Mackay born 1 June 1856. I think she is the daughter of Elizabeth Mackay and George Mackay, if I have the naming patterns correct. Can you be of help?Linda in Albuq.
