Re: Sinclair's of Prince Edward Island

Dear George;
We owe a debt to Mr. Quartermain for his service in
connecting people and families. The world is indeed getting
smaller. We are connected and are cousins, and I am pleased
to report that having come from visiting our relations two
weeks ago in Prince Edward Island you will be happy to hear
they are doing well and prospering. While we are currently
working on all the links with them there are some points of
interest for all on the web-lonk to know. The emmigration of
Sinclairs to Prince Edward Islad was comprised from a family
based in Argyll Scotland so that the Argyll comments and
communications relate to your wifes direct ancestors. These
have been traced through North America with a few lost septs
to discover. The migration to PEI occured between 1770 and
1840. For those linking to PEI there was a smaller family
that arrived from Ireland in the early 1900's. Most of the
Sinclair and Gordons on Prince Edward Island are however
If individuals want information on the PEI Sinclair trubes
we are more than pleased to help. Going back further in
History Karen, Toni and I are working on the Argyll
connections and links.

So cousin I will connect with you directly with a bow and
accolade to John Sinclair Quartermain.
