Well thank you very much to everyone who took the time to look into my post. Due to the time difference it was the middle of the night when I posted and afterwards my wee lad was up a few times so it was a night of broken sleep. Ah well, time for work. I am very grateful for the info and i will have a good look at it all once the working day is over. Thank you very much 😊

Hello! First time post on here so please excuse the over the top enthusiasm. I am hoping someone on here might have some information on my great great uncle, the aforementioned  Alexander Keith.
Alexander was born in Brough, Caithness on the 29th of July 1891 to Angus Keith and his wife Jane (nee Bruce), and passed away on the 7th October 1975.
During the course of his life Alexander emigrated til Australia and raised a family in Nyngan, New South Wales with his wife Esther Stephenson. They had 3 sons and 5 daughters so far as I know.
If anyone has any information on Alexander or his family it would be lovely to hear from you. Thanks for reading this!

Where do you have Catherine and Robert as getting married? Golspie, Sutherland aye? They had 3 bairns, my grandad Robert was their eldest, then they had Donnie and Catherine (Cathy). Grandad married Helen MacLeod Keith and they had my dad Donald and my aunt Pearl, both sadly passed away now. Donnie married but never had any children while Cathy married Jimmy Kay and had 6 children, four of whom are still alive.
My great granny ran Seaforth Lodge in Thurso as a bed and breakfast, while great grandad had a garage and car showroom down at the riverside. He used to travel down til Aberdeen to buy cars which he then drove back up til Caithness to sell in his showroom!

Hi! Sorry to butt in on a conversation, but George Henderson MacRae is my great great grandad! His daughter Catherine Mowat (nee MacRae) is my great granny. Squirejay, Elizabeth (or Betty) was the youngest of all the daughters born to George and Catherine MacRae.
I realise this conversation is a few years old but if you read this it would be nice to hear from you. Cheers!
