In Reply to: Mackay Embo Sutherland Scotland by Alex J J Watt of 985

My father thomas Mackay emigrated from Embo to New Zealand in 1950. My father died in 1977 so i don't have alot of informaton about his family. His father was also Thomas Mackay and his mother was Williamina Mackay. I have lost contact with my father's family in Embo but i know my father had a brother Jimmy living in Embo. Jimmy's daughter Wilma was pictured in a postcard of one of the streets in Embo where the family lived. I think it was Front Street or gate Street. My father also had a sister Lena who died years ago and a sister Jessie who married William Frew. Jessie and her husband lived in Ayr. Her daughter Shona married Quentin Pettigrew and has a son called Graeme.
I think my father also had another sister Johanna but i don't know anything about her.

I hope this is of some interest to you. if anyone can give me more information about my relatives i would appreciate it.
