George and Elizabeth Mackay

This is the first message, because I requested it and I hope others will join me in furthering the search of our Scots Mackays. My Mackays are from Edinburgh, and Cathiness and Sutherland shires. The furthest back I've gotten is George Mackay married to Elizabeth Mackay. I don't know if that is her maiden name or married name. George was born in Melness, and died in Portscherra. Elizabeth died in Portscherra. That is across from the Orney Islands. I have been in the now Garage/storage that used to be the croft where my great grandmother, Hughina was born!! It is now owned by Colin MacDonald whose mother, Catherine was sister to Hughina. Catherine died in 1938 giving birth to her son Ned Harrison who is still living. But that is the end of that line. Does any one out there find something familiar in all of this? Please respond with your message and then email me to look at GenForum. Thanks, Linda
