I am searching for any data I can find on the MacRaes of Kintail (Wester Ross) that might shed some light on the parents of my 6th great-grandfather, William Rea or MacRea, born in 1670 in Kintail. I have already consulted a clan historian, who was unable to find William mentioned in the clan's genealogies. I'm afraid that any such data, if it exists at all, can only be found by someone who has access to local records or other sources from the period. Obviously, I don't care about sources that cover only the nineteenth century, as they will do me no good at all. I need data from the 17th century if I'm ever to solve this mystery. Any help would be appreciated, though.
