Macaulays

Title: Macaulays
Posted by: Lucy Rai on 21-04-2010

Discussion: Sorry me again - if anyone knows anything about the Mcaulay family, I'd love to hear from you (m.l.rai@open.ac.uk). Christine Mcaulay was my Great Grandma, she lived in Dalebuegh and married a Stewart in 1900 in Dalkeith. She never returned to the island after her marriage and her parents had already died, but I wonder if anyone remembers the family?

Hi Lucy,

You could try getting in touch with Gilbert Walker at Daliburgh Post Office. He was the registrar for the area until the service was recently moved to the local council offices.

His genealogical knowledge of South Uist families is probably unrivalled and he's generally very accomodating to enquiries.
