Hello again anne quick reply .good.. Firstly i know you said one of your dads brothers names was dugal is that mispelt and is it dougal as if it is,i have a brother who was named dougal ian macrae he was born in 1976 i was born 1974 kirk jean alexander macrae in suffolk. my mothers name was debra jean tucker at the time was born in america in 1955 and met my father in ipswich.and they split up when i was 4 years old. i think my father also has a brother in ipswich. i am not sure, though. also i believe my father to have another family in new zealand. i will have to ask my brother some details, as he has met my father around 1991.when we lived in york,he was curious to see what kind of man he was.also will have to send you some pictures of me and my brother as i think and people we have met have said how much i look like duncan macrae. same build and facial features,its really strange for me i have always felt like a lost soul, no relatives here which i know i have, but my mother doesnt really talk about the past..its hard for me sometimes.i watch his films and admire his dedication to the arts and attention to comedic detail. absolutely fascinating, i know there is alot of his work kept at the university of glasgow alot of info there but havnt been in contact with them yet.i want some kind of connection as i really believe that we could be related. please let me know whereabouts you live and maybe a bit about yourself if your comfortable doing so .i would love to keep this going with you,most people these days probably wouldnt bother , but personally it is a journey. and i need to know who i am, sounds strange but im 33 now i have a partner catherine who is also 33 and a daughter hannah macrae who was born on the same birthday as me 1 march at exactly the same minute as i was born in 1974, i have had a hard upbringing. but have landed on my feet and am very happy, so i have this chance to fill in the jigsaw. please reply and help me. thankyou again kirk macrae.
