Re: Clan Sinclair Website Reporter?

Your note of this morning is heading in the right direction. There are a
number of bits of information that come every day some of specific interest
and some of general interest from historical or geographical perspectives.
Over time we are really amassing a ton of valuable information that needs to
be sorted and gathered into comprehensive summaries and references. I save a
lot of what goes through and there is a lot of interesting material that
starts linking together. You will recall the "stuff" around the Sinclair
migration to your neck of the woods spawned responses to Sinclair place
names and a whole bunch of material sifted through this. It i a small
example. I have to split but am ready to follow up further on this tomorrow.
My observation is that there are a number of passionate historians around
with specific fields of expertise and areas of concentration.  Do keep up
the good work and reach me individually if you need.
