I am currently tracing my family roots and have found that my father's father's family were McDonalds from Reay in the 17/1800's before moving to Lerwick and then to Edinburgh...My mother's mother's family were Swansons also from Reay at the same time and moved to Scarfskerry and Edinburgh The McDonalds were cartwrights and the Swansons were Shoemakers....can anyone give me any more info on either family
