These pages are dedicated to my father, Alexander MacPhee, and his brothers and sisters, exploring the ancestry of their parents, Donald MacPhee (South Uist) and Maggie Jane McDougall (Aberdeenshire), and to my mother, Rose Lindsay, and her brothers and sisters, exploring the ancestry of their parents, Neil Lindsay (Argyll) and Maggie Reid (Co.Antrim).

Most of those from South Uist, in the Hebrides, were crofters or cottars, in the area of Kilpheder and Lochboisdale, whereas the Aberdeenshire side were mostly fisher folk or in marine merchant services, around Peterhead and Whinnyfold (pronounced 'finny-faal'), on the Scottish north-east coastline. The Argyll lines were also shepherds, and Maggie Reid came from dairy farming folk. The Irish records, however, are almost non-existent, making researching of the Reids very difficult.  

The table below links to descendant pages for the researched lines. If there is no link, it is because there's not yet enough information to display, but these lines are being researched.

If you are linked to any of these families, or are able to supply additional information, please don't hesitate to get in touch, using the address below.
