Love to hear from anyone wishing to identify as Line Leaders and who can help me find living male descendants of other SINTON branches who may be willing to participate.  

Also to add any particular SINTON Family History information, lineage or interesting links to these pages. 

Project Diary:

  • Nov 8 2008: Project diary transferred to a SintonDNA google blog - if you are a dna participant, or an active SINTON researcher, send me an email to get authorship rights.
  • Oct 21 2008: 12 marker results in for descendant of John SINTON and Alison HALL (marr. Southdean 1829). And a 12/12 match with descendants of the Southdean family of Peter and Janet (DONALDSON) SINTON. If only we knew how they connect.
  • Sep 22, 2008: Descendant of William SINTON and Isabella SCOTT (of Jedburgh) has joined the project.
  • Jul 17, 2008: Pedigree for John SINTON of Southdean (married Alison HALL) added to the patriarchs page.
