Hi Juli -
Re: Sinclairs in Dunoon
& Kilmun parish, Neil Sinclair (Canada) has ancestors who emigrated from
Glendaruel in Argyll County to PEI. I've been poking around, trying to
connect my Duncan Sinclair (b. 1781-2 in Scotland). A high proportion
of those Scots living in North Carolina came from Argyll County. I've
noticed that many, many Sinclairs from Glenorchy & Inishail parish moved
south to Dunoon & Kilmun parish. Dunoon is just across from the
port of Greenock, and it appears that many in that area made their living
on/from the sea. I personally have only looked at records
The Scottish parish registers (christenings and marriages)
are available on computer through the LDS Church at their local family
history branches. Check your phone book under "The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints." If they don't have a listing
for a family history center, just start calling numbers and ASK! To be
sure to get someone, call on a Sunday between 8 am and 4-5 pm. Their
centers are open free to the public. Even if you're not in the United
States, you should still check your phone book!!!
Hope this helps.
P.S. NEIL - How's the article coming?! I'd
love to see the next draft!
Hi Karen -
I was reviewing past postings to the
discussion group and came across a comment that you are researching
Sinclair's in Dunoon. I haven't seen anything further to that
If you are? What time period?
My Sinclairs moved out of Glenorchy and Inveraray into
Dunoon. My granny is a Sinclair and was born in Greenock before
her father returned to Dunoon and still lives in Dunoon.
Have a great day,
