Hi there. I am wondering if anyone would have any information about my grandfather, Alexander McRae, DOB 16th May 1871 at Cullen. Banff. I know he died on 31st March 1922 in Buckhill, Wiltshire..

The following replies have been posted in response to the above query. They are sorted chronologically according to the time of receipt, with the most recent at the end of the page.
If you go to the Scotlandspeople site for 1 credit you will find him listed as number 6 of the 13 born that year a further 5 credits will allow you to view his birth certificate or for £ 12.00 you can purchase a copy. This should give you his parents names from which provided they married after 1855 you can obtain their marriage certificate this in turn should have their parents details from here on things become much more difficult as pure chance dictates whether the record you are searching for still exists.

Best of luck
