Sinclair DNA SNPs Keep Changing Things

Like many families who derive their surname from a place, our family has many different Lineages. In our case, our DNA lineages don't share a common Sinclair ancestor for at least 2,300 years. In some cases, the time frame is more like 50,000 years. And yet, SNP studies are proving that many of our Lineages could have been at the right place at the right time to acquire the surname from the land they lived on or the lord who owned it.

Sinclair DNA, St. Clair DNA, Sinkler DNA, Sinceler DNA and More

Our family has many different spellings. We are seeing distinct places associated with the different spellings -
Sinclair - Northern Scotland
St Clair - England
St Claire - Southwestern England
Sinkler - Southwestern Scotland
And so on.

By visiting the St Clair Research website, you can find deeper information on the spelling derivations and where they can be found in England and Europe.
