Well here it is the Sinclair Genealogy list. I would appreciate it if you would put it up as an announcement on the site and the list.

It is for the free exchange of and search for genealogy. I expect it to start very slowly but all things take time. The URL for subscription is

If the list does not work out, well at least I tried. Please also forward this to Lena as her input would be appreciated.

List will be moderated and topic will be genealogy only (searches, requests for help, those with books to offer will be allowed to advise over the list)

Wish us luck, I think it may be a good addition to the existing list and web sites.

Yours Aye,

Gary M. Sinclair

Sinclair Genealogy List


As you are all aware, for quite some time there has been intermittent discussion about possibly splitting off a separate genealogy-only list. It appears that we finally have sufficient interest for this to happen. And even more than the interest, we have a volunteer who has not only set up such a list; he has also agreed to moderate it.

Gary M. Sinclair is known to all of you as a participant in the discussion list, for his web pages about the Sinclairs of Grafton Massachusetts, and as a commissioner of Clan Sinclair U.S.A.

I salute Gary on his bravery in undertaking this task.
Meanwhile, the Sinclair Discussion list remains as it has always been. It remains open to whatever topics its members desire, including history, genealogy, groups, families, pictures, publications, events, places, etc.

Each style of list has its own uses. I subscribe to both lists. I recommend that you try both and see which one or both suit your needs. —jsq
(And I thank him for doing it, because this means I won't have to. :-)

This new list is moderated, which means its members submit messages to the moderator, Gary M. Sinclair. The moderator then approves the message and sends it on to the subscribers, or not. Moderation should eliminate chatter and inappropriate messages and provide focus on the single topic of genealogy. I'm sure Gary will further define the new list as it develops. To subscribe, see the URL he has supplied.
