Bret, In regard to "scion," I've always assumed, without knowing exactly
what it meant, that it referred to a "wealthy male" heir.
I'm not sure who answered my post about St. Clair/Sinclair, but he obviously
would rather berate than go to sources himself to verify. I think he needs
to read up on the St. Clairs/Sinclairs of Rosslyn. Also, Rosslyn Chapel has a
nice website to visit.
I take most of my medieval genealogy from a particular Rootsweb site which I
have as much confidence in as any. It might also have been noticed that I
wrote "if the genealogy is as I have found it." I think I may have found as
many ancestors as anyone. I also realize some people can't stand for someone
else to write about his or her ancestors, or to have ancestors that they may
If I read you correctly, Bret, that M.Sjostrom is the Leo of Australia, whom
I read so much about, and he is the one who answered, then I am surprised
and disappointed in him. Not that what was written bothers me, but the obvious
dislike behind it doesn't suit a professional genealogist.
Goodbye to all. I think I'm in the wrong group.
