Re: Roll Call ?


Hello Michael,
I am descended from a Mary Sinclair  1775 - 1853 who married Alexander Campbell.  Her father was John Sinclair b abt 1740 married to Catherine McCuaig abt 1755-1811.
I looked at our shared DNA M645852, the biggest porttion was only 4cms on CHR 12.  Interestingly when I look at my DNA links on DNA painter I find that I have links from <1m - 12M as Campbell/Sinclairs.  And you fit within that larger portion.  Hope that makes some kind of sense to you.  As I am not expert on the tehn terms.
Unfortunately an error came up on M143149  My Ged No is A768704.
Let me know what you think

My name is Michael Collins. I live in New Zealand. I have been researching my family from Islay since the mid 1990s. My family from Isaly are:

Duncan Sinclair and Margaret MacDougall. Their son: Duncan Sinclair (1782-1879) of Oa who married Mary MacGibbon (1800-91) daughter of Hector MacGibbon and Janet Blue.

Duncan and Mary Sinclair's son John Sinclair( 1835-1932) migrated to New Zealand in 1860. He is my GG Grandfather. 

My DNA profile is on Gedmatch: M645852 and M143149. I also have a presence on FTDNA and I have family trees on and

I look forward to connecting with potential distant cousins with an aim of making some headway in our shared heritage which I am sure most on this site will admit is challenging.

Kind regards
