Looking for Ronald George Macdonald

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Blair Report 17 Dec 2013 00:19

Hello everyone. I'm having trouble finding an address for my father, Ronald George Macdonald. He was born in 1947 in Scotland, Dundee I think. The last known location I have for him is Alyth. If it helps, I have also been told that he has two other children, Lydia and Chloe Macdonald. It was a bit of a nightmare when I first started searching for a "Ronald Macdonald" :-|

I haven't seen him since I was around 2 years old. It is important to me to find him. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

There is a Ronald G Macdonald right age living in Perth with a Lydia who looks to be his daughter

Do you have access to the electoral registers on here?

Looks like you can find them both on Facebook

Easier to search for Lydia then look for her friends one being a Ron and yes he also has a daughter called Chloe

Hey. Thanks! Only just found that one myself. No details of the full address on that record, but it looks like a very promising start.

I have added about Face book to my post above incase you didn't see it

I think you will find that is the full address

Just found him on facebook after 22 years of not seeing him and cried a little. Thank you man. I had tried looking for him before but never had any luck. Only found out about his other children recently and didn't think to look. Wow, thanks.

N.B You say that is the full address but the one I have shows blank fields for "House name" and "street" which only leaves me with a general area.

As they are listed on, have you bought credits to view the entry?

The entry on the ER on GR does not give the details. Hopefully, but not definitely, the 192 entry might.

There is a listing on Page 3 for R MacDonald, Perth on, but it is in Perth itself.

What do you think about this entry - any family resemblance to the photo?


jax Report 19 Dec 2013 14:38


I said I believe it was the full address as I looked it up on People tracer as well

Unless GR record is different from FMP??

If you want it let me know but as he is on FB you may want to contact him there

Not sure that is him in that link DET nothing like the photo of the man on FB he had hair...taken at daughters wedding

This is the ER entry on GR -not a lot of help!

Building Name
District Perth
Region Tayside, Central And Fife
Area Perth
County Perthshire
Country Scotland

I wasn't too sure about the Linkedin entry, hence the phrases used ;-)
The occupation(s) would fit with that posted on FB. Perhaps Blair has some 2nd hand knowledge into what line of work Ronald was in? No need to post what it was here!!!

Edit @ 2046- ignore the above. On reflection it probably isn't him.


jax Report 19 Dec 2013 21:43

Yes I see DET... FMP and People tracer are more detailed


Blair Report 21 Dec 2013 21:41

Thanks again guys. The linkedin profile doesn't seem to be him but thanks anyway. Don't really have the money to buy a bunch of credits for several things to search for the address in full. I'm not sure about contacting him over facebook, but it's good to know that the option is there. I'd like to have the address for peace of mind, to know where he is exactly and that, if possible, I could simply go and meet him :-)

Does his family know about you, do you think?
