Re: testing a new discussion site idea-please read this

Hi Donald,

Any information you have on any of the others (besides my own g 
grandfather) would be REALLY welcome!! I find it hard to get any info and 
haven't been able to elicit a response from Niven yet (I'm hoping Mum might 
have more luck)!!

I've found a copy of the first page of the research you're talking about, 
amongst Grandpa's papers, but not the second page... although I tend to 
think that the research is incorrect regarding George Sinclair's 
parents.  They list Christina McKay as his mother, and hunting through the 
scottish archives over a 20 year span, this marriage doesn't occur!!  nor 
is there a birth for George Sinclair with Christina or Christian Mckay 
(even using soundex) as the mother. However, there was a marriage between 
George Sinclair and Christian Henderson, who had a son George Sinclair at 
the right time, and given the use of Henderson as a middle name in the 
family, I tend to believe that is the correct marriage and child.  Anyway, 
I've ordered George Sinclairs death certificate, and that should tell me 
more.  Would you like a copy when I get it?

Personally I love the research, but it's difficult to do from here in 
Australia! (as you can imagine) and am more than happy to photocopy 
anything I find and send it over to you to keep.  It's always good if one 
person has copies of everything!

Talk soon and thanks :)
