Fraser Relations

Epitaph On My Ever Honoured Father

O ye whose cheek the tear of pity stains,
Draw near with pious rev'rence, and attend!
Here lie the loving husband's dear remains,
The tender father, and the gen'rous friend;
The pitying heart that felt for human woe,
The dauntless heart that fear'd no human pride;
The friend of man-to vice alone a foe;
For "ev'n his failings lean'd to virtue's side."
(Robert Burns 1784)

Welcome, family and friends.



stamp Descendants of William Mackay Fraser

In tracing this Fraser family from Embo,Sutherlandshire, Scotland, we have encountered several hurdles; one of which is the fact that their names were most likely gaelic originally. The records found at Scotland's People are in english and translations of names, and nick names seem to vary. As well, Embo is also referred to as Fishertown, Dornoch in some documents.
Please advise us of any corrections to the following:
