2nd kit ordered

Second kit sent out - to a descendant of James SINTON and Margaret WILKIE, James being a son of Peter SINTON and Janet DONALDSON.
These first two kits will hopefully provide a good benchmark for the Southdean lineage of Peter SINTON and Janet DONALDSON.

2nd: SINTON DNA Project initiated

The SINTON Family DNA Project initiated by Lorna Henderson, a descendant of Peter SINTON and Janet DONALDSON from the Scottish Borders.
Objective is to determine whether or not the assorted SINTON lines are connected, particularly those around Southdean in Roxburghshire, but any other SINTONs, or those suspecting SINTON links, are welcome to join in the fun.

Welcome to the new blog for the SINTON Surname DNA Project

If you are a participant in the dna project or an active SINTON researcher, I'd be happy to add you as an "author" to this blog so that you can create your own posts, instead of just commenting on existing ones, as everyone else should be able to do.
