Re: Thanks, Jean & questions
Nice to hear from you. There are photo albums around but most I beleive
are simply family. I know that I see a likeness in one of my
cousins to the Raeburn painting of Sir John Sinclair, and Niven walks
like my Dad, whose first cousin he was. When I was about 12/13 I
was told by a visiting relation that I looked the image of Charlotte
Calder who was my Great Grandmother, and so the lines continue. Sinclairs
are very frequently married to second and first cousins as you will
notice as you go back into the geneology of the clan. It was as if they
were determined to keep a strong gene pool alive. It would be
fascinating to run a study of DNA on our lot.
Re the Templars - we have some material but in Australia, we don't have
much access to original or prime source. Different with the
internet to help, but even so , I mainly try to keep my eyes on what
Milamba is researching. As she is my daughter and shares my home,
we do talk a fair bit about that. I am fascinated by them but more
so by Prince Henry and the traces of Sinclair history in Nova
12 hour days - too long - what on earth do you do?

It is my hope to go to Scotland one day. Even before I
knew the little I do about my heritage, I always felt drawn to the
landscapes, legends, and history of Scotland, particularly the medieval
I am very interested in reliable information regarding the
Clan Sinclair's association with the Knights Templar and wondered if any
of you shared that interest?
Is there a Clan Sinclair photo album anywhere?
