Re: (no subject)

We have been to the Scottish Highland Games in Costa Mesa for the last six
years, and the Sinclairs have always had a tent.  We plan to go again this
year, and I'm really looking forward to it, because I too have found my line
through Jean Grigsby's research, although I don't recall the exact lineage.
My great grandmother was a Sinclair, and I was always trying to research her
line to prove my Scottish heritage (my husband always says I just want to be
Scottish!).  Anyway, stop by the tent and visit with the people there...they
are really nice.  Have you been to this Festival before?  It's become a
family tradition with us.  Maybe we can meet there!  We will be there
Saturday; we always like to see the opening ceremonies.

Please e-mail me if you are interested.  Our address is:
yokers@prodigy.net.  We also have a website,
(http://pages.prodigy.net/yokers/ but I was trying to update it, and messed
up some of the pages, including my genealogical page!  I've got to get it
back to normal.  When I do, you can see a picture of my great grandmother,
Mahalia Frances Sinclair.

Hope to hear from you!

Pam Yokers
