Re: [Fwd: Family tree of the Earls of Caithness and the Lords Sinclair]


Yes, I am doing the exact same thing.  I have entered both my father's (Sinclair) and
my mother's families (my great aunt was a genealogist involved with the Mayflower
Society) into my database.  I have been quite lucky on all sides, provided with far
more info than I can digest.  I think that as a result I have gained more and more
interest in the history of it all.  My database contains 1400+ people and is growing
all the time.  I have added bios when ever possible.  It would be amazing one day to
have one giant database, but I fear the genealogists would not be so happy.

Great Luck,
