Apparently, some test subjects at FTDNA had not accepted Terms and Policies so FTDNA will remove their kits. If you have issues with your kit, please contact Steve at SaintClair1398@gmail.com

Gregory, if you mean the Arthur Sinclair (1462-1513) who died at the Battle of Flodden, he is my 13th uncle on one line and 15th uncle on another line. His father is William Sinclair (1433-1487) 2nd Lord Sinclair.

I think some who trace back to Pennsylvania think this is possible, but I'm not sure any have totally proven it. Will ask around.

Steve, I am curious about my St. Clair family's sub-clade. We've talked before. My grandmother was born in 1899 and was the youngest of 7 children. Her father died when she was 3. She had two brothers and I don't think there are surviving male descendants from that line. Two possible sources for my line. John St. Clair moved from Baltimore Maryland to Guernsey county, Ohio in the early 1800, lots of descendant from that area and also back in Maryland. Have traced St. Clair line back to Sinclair in Scotland--William Sinclair born ca 1630 in Caithness Scotland and immigrated to British colony of Delaware in mid to late 1670s. Family ended up in what became Baltimore, Maryland and remained in area at least 200 years. Do you have any information from those areas. Thanks for what ever information you might be able to share. Thanks

Hi Brian, I've been curious about that family. I recall reading about it at some point, possibly in David Dobson's ship registry books. I've not run into any of that line I can remember. How far back is your connection Brian?

My Sinclair antecedents came from that area Baltimore , Md. I am related to Margaret Sinclair Royston b. 1735 • Baltimore, Anne Arundel County, Maryland Colony who married: Thomas Royston 1726-1775 Her grandfather was: William Sinclair /St. Clair ll 1680–1774 Birth 1680 • Prince George, Maryland, United States Death 20 APR 1774 • Baltimore, Baltimore, Maryland, United States His father was : William St. Clair (Sinclair) B:1630 in Scotland D:1697 in , Maryland, USA Brian, is this the same family you have in your records?

Yes, my 4th great-grandfather was James St. Clair (Sinclair) son of William Sinclair/St.Clair 1680-1774. So William (II) and his wife Elizabeth Tamon would be our common ancestors. James would be uncle to Margaret. I have her as daughter to his brother William Janes Sinclair/St.Clair and Mary Hines, but that's all I have. My James married Mary Lester and I descend from their youngest son John who moved to Guernsey county, Ohio just after the War of 1812 ended. My e-mail is b.david.beers@gmail.com. I would be happy to continue this conversation off this thread and share information. Great to hear from you.

August 26 @ 5:19pm
Steve or Mark -- Can you tell me the kit number of Robert Boin St. Clair? I'm trying to pull out match information for the closest matches to my father (Charles F. Sinclair, kit 34425). I can't identify exactly which line on the DNA results chart is for his results. Also, I added a note for him summarizing his line, hoping that would aid anyone else looking at DNA matches against his record. Are those kit numbers considered confidential? Or maybe I'm not looking in the right place. Thanks. Lynne Sinclair (daughter of Charles F.)
Steve St Clair
September 4 @ 11:34pm
Hi Lynne, Out of respect for Robert Boin St. Clair's privacy, I can't give that out. What I will do is send him an email with your email address in it so you guys can get in touch if he chooses. Please send your email address to me at SaintClair1398@gmail.com Thanks, Steve

I’ve sent you a couple of emails, Steve.
Steve St Clair
September 13 @ 8:55pm
I know you did. I hope everyone here reads this reply. I take people's privacy very seriously. The fact that someone in the study asks for someone else's DNA results doesn't mean I'm allowed to give them access to the requested kit. Until I do a thorough check, I do not release the material. Lynne, I'll be emailing you tonight with the information you need. I'll do this only so long as you agree not to share them beyond yourself. There's an outstanding matter I have to clear up.

Hello, Craig St-Clair got in touch with me in April 2017, recommending I have the Z8 SNP test, of which I did. I ended up being confirmed to belong to the R-Y8604 Group. All of this is Greek to me and Craig promised to shed some light on it once I would obtain my results. However, he never did and perhaps something happened to him that prevented to return his comments. I wonder a group administrator could assist me with this please.
Steve St Clair
September 4 @ 11:01pm
Hi Jean-Pierre, Your kit number is 584511 and you’re showing up in the unclassified results because Craig left the study unexpectedly. I’ll move you up to where you belong. More on that below, and it’s very cool !! The first major clue is that you’re showing DF102, which likely connects you to the A2 group on this page of results - https://www.familytreedna.com/public/Sinclair?iframe=yresults That mutation happened about 2,200 years ago per Yfull.com - https://www.yfull.com/tree/R-DF102/ The narrative of this group is that they’re the Ancestral Sinclairs of Roslin & Orkney, the Earldom. You also show the S5245 SNP, which also supposedly mutated about 2,200 years before present. I don’t trust these numbers just yet… too similar. More to come, Steve

Hello. I seem to have hit a dead end. My great grandfather was George Frederick Sinclair. He was born in Hull, Yorkshire, England in 1770 and died 1824 in Sullivan, Maine. His wife was Marie Peters. She was born in Dumfries, Scotland 1839. I'm trying to find out who George Frederick Sinclair's ancestors were. Thank you. deadriver60@gmail.com

England as a birthplace could be wrong. Might be Caithness or Oldhamstocks, East Lothian, Scotland. Thx.

August 24 @ 1:57pm
Hi Steve. How are you? Never found anything more regarding the "illusive" Joseph Sinclair, my grandmother's biological father. He simply disappears after a 1910 census in Jackman, Maine. I believe my 4th great grandfather George Frederick Sinclair parents were George & Catharine. Thanks for having a look. Paul

I've looked through David Dobson's ship records, but nothing matches. However, "Sinclair Family" by Leonard A Morrison has several mentions of Joseph and George Sinclairs in the northeastern states. He was focused mostly on Exeter, New Hampshire. Emailing you offline.
