New Member Intro

Hello to all:

  As a New member I felt it only polite to give myself a short

  My name is Ramona Hartley, From BC Canada.  My primary interest in the
Sinclair list is geneology although I am keenly interested in anything
"Sinclair".  I would describe myself as being genologically -wet behind the
ears- escpecially in conection with my Sinclair interests ..I confess to
ignorance at the start and ask for patience.   

Geneology is fairly new to me due to the fact that I am an adopted
child..this is also the reason behind my obsessiveness to trace my lineage,
also I have found I enjoy it quite a lot *S*.  Since meeting my Birth
Mother I have traced my Lineage through my Grandmothers Norwegian roots to
the year 1400  and have just begun to trace my Grandfathers Scotts roots. 
This side of my Family tree is a great Joy to me as I was raised by a
Scotts family and brought up with Scotts traditions  ( Oh yes I've eaten my
share of Haggis...and admit to liking it).

I Suppose I should list my name intrests...the "what I have so far" part. 
I will begin with my grandfather : a McCallum and go from there to my
Sinclair Conections.

I have extensive information on the children & families of the names above

A little question on behalf of my Husband.  He is an avid old time strength
trainer with a keen interest in Lifting stones..particularly the "clach
cuid fir" or manhood stones of Scotland anyone with information on the
whereabouts of these stones would be greatly aiding me towards a trip to

I hope I have not broken any codes of conduct in this post, be sure to
inform  if I did.
