Re: This is a test.

Hi Rebecca

I'm still here, and yes, things have been quiet.  I guess, like everyone, we've
just been busy - raking leaves, Halloween, whatever. 

 Actually, I have found a little bit more on my Sinclair branch.  A couple of weeks ago, I tracked down a very distant relative, who had more information on
Neil and Christian Sinclair's oldest son - John and his wife, Emma Hamilton Campbell.  (All from Islay, Argyll).  I even have a photograph of their portraits (very stern!), so I can imagine what his parents looked like!  

However, I can't find anything new about Neil and Christian.  I spent four days
searching through some archival material in Peterborough.  A man by the name of
"Tolmie" did an extraordinary amount of research on the area of Victoria County
where the Islay emigrants settled.  There are  11 file boxes of hand-written
notes which were all donated by his family, and I got through 2 of them.  As yet, they are unsorted, and not indexed, and his handwriting is very small!  

So folks, since it's been quite a while since I posted, does anyone have any information on the above Neil and Christian Sinclair, who were married on Islay
in 1801, and emigrated to Victoria County, Canada in probably 1842?
