Re: "Nothing to fear but fear itself"

    I remember you from messages long ago and wondered whether you were
still around.  Since then I have learned that Gordon Holmes of BC also
descends from William Sinclair of HBC  and I have copies of his research.
   You can contact him at   lafleur@home.com

     I also recognize the name Inkster as that of Julie Inkster the golfer.
Any relation?   She was a close friend of our neighbors, now deceased.
