RE: Starting to trace my Sinclair branch


Thanks for your description of the sinclair nose.  I was most curious about the trait.  As I was reading your message, just as I almost hit the delete button, I remembered that my father,  five generations removed from sinclairs in scotland, had a large and hooked nose.  Now my father was very vain and fastidious.  He told us, along with a huge number of other truth-bendings, that he had broken his nose twice playing basketball as a young man, thereby causing the prominence of his nose.  I wonder if he didn't just come that way, with a sinclair nose but made up one of his better-than-the-facts stories because his nose didn't fit his perfect image.

I always rather admired his nose.  I'd like to think it held the genetic connection to people and places very distant in time and space.

Thank you!!

You know that cracks me up! My Dad and I share the "Noble Roman nose" of the
Sinclairs in my family! I too have always been "recognized" for having "The
nose" of a Sinclair. What a small world it is. Thanks for the chuckle Kay.
