Re: Connections with Portugal??
John, your information is very helpful about the Sutherlands. My brother in
law is a Sutherland. He is very much into Scottish history etc. I am going
to tell him about the Sinclair site. It's been helpful to me. I'm a Stewart
decendant. The Sinclair site has really been more helpful to me than the
Stuart (Royal) site. By being on the mailing list, I receive at least
several helpful responses each day. I have noticed that your responses have
been not only been numerous but helpful. Thanx for your dedication.
