Here are some of the more prominent ones:
<a href="http://www.georgiahistory.com/">
Georgia Historical Society</a>
the oldest and perhaps the broadest, located in Savannah
<a href="http://www.huxford.com/">
Huxford Genealogical Society</a>
publishes a series of books and a quarterly, located in Homerville
<a href="http://www.firstct.com/fv/EPO.html">
Ellen Payne Odom Genealogical Library</a>
extensive Scottish collections and a newspaper, located in Moultrie

Several people whom I have copied are researching a Duncan Sinclair
who emigrated from Argyll, Scotland to Moore County, NC.  From there
on to Georgia was a fairly common emigration route.

Could you post your sources for this information?

Yes, we are cousins.  Jesse Carver who married Boissy was my g4-uncle:

John Sinclair QUARTERMAN
mother: Laura Elizabeth HARGREAVES
father: Leon Abraham HARGREAVES
father: Leon Abraham HARGREAVES
father: Abram HARGREAVES
mother: Rhoda CARVER
brother: Jesse CARVER

So you and I are approximately fifth cousins.

Not only that, but if Boissy was a Sinclair as your research indicates,
and given that all the Sinclairs we know of in Moore Co., NC were Argyll
Sinclairs, the connection you're making would indicate that Karen Matheson
who is descended from those Argyll Sinclairs is also our cousin.

The Sinclairs of my middle name came from Thurso to Georgia, so there
would also thus be a very indirect later intermarriage connection
between my Caithness Sinclairs and the Moore Co. NC Sinclairs from Argyll.

Most of the U.S. Sinclairs on this list are descended from a John Sinkler
who emigrated to New England fairly early.  We Georgia people are rare
on this list.
