Clan MacRae History

Names and dates are important, but the real story of Clan MacRae and related families comes from historical and genealogical records, oral tradition, and family stories and customs. We offer the Clan MacRae History pages to the stories and we invite your contributions. Every story tells us more about our shared heritage, the pain and the joy, and we learn about real people – not just another name or another  date. We will be adding many stories from our research, and we encourage you to contribute your stories as well. From the well known Big Duncan of the Battle Axe, or his lesser known son Dougal, to the mystery of Macrae’s Folly or One-Armed John, and more. We have a tremendously rich heritage to share!
