I am trying to trace descendants of my three aunts who emigrated to canada from Scotland back in the 1920s. They were Mary McKay McRae, christina Taylor McRae and Maggie Buchan McRae. They were all. Ron in Fraserburgh, Scotland, their parents being James and Maggie McRae.
Mary (known as Polly) left Scotland along with christina (known as Chrissie) on the Marloch landing in St. John's in 1923. Mary married a Charles Warner in 1925 and later emigrated to USA (Michigan). She died on 5th December 1935 in Oakland, Michigan. I believe she had a son Charles.
I can find little information on Chrissie, but I understand she married an orlan chase and at some time she lived in leamington. She had two daughters - Mary Smithers and Audrey christina Pearce, who understand are both deceased.
Maggie Buchan McRae (meg) left Scotland in 1928 again arriving in St. John's. Meg had two sons Neil and Kenneth. I think she lived in Scarborough, Ontario.
I would appreciate any information anyone can provide.

I am so pleased to have received a reply from Wayne Pearce in respect of my query. My relationship to christina Taylor McRae is I am her niece. My mother Agnes McRae was my mothers older sister. I have been doing my family tree and have a lot of information on the McRae family who originally came from Fraserburgh, Scotland. There is so much information I have but so much more I would like to find out about the McRae family who emigrated to canada. I know that my sister Margaret mcdonald has also been trying to trace our family. I live in Aberdeen, Scotland and would be delighted to hear from you - my email address is donlindsay@btinternet.com
