That would be grand - imagine if they actually "matched" (meaning not exact but close enough based on the number of generations that separate them).

The Sinclair numbers are on my Shetland website:

I have Jean's 25 markers on file for comparison when you can obtain a DNA sample from your relative. He claims descent also from Ragnvald. I will try to convince him to upload his data to Ysearch and Ybase. Perhaps having these two other alleged descendants in the male line will spur things on at your end.
