I was born in Mount Holly, Burlington, New Jersey. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Art from Rowan University. I am divorced with no children. I love to travel and photograph what I see.
I am mostly British (60%), Swedish/Norwegian (30%), Irish/Scottish (7%) and German (2%). I am a proud descendant of John Sinclair who originally came from Scotland and settled in New Hampshire. My great grandmother, Carlotta West Sinclair, is the last of my line to have been included in the 1896 Sinclair lineage book. My grandmother, Carlotta's first child, and I have Sinclair as our middle names. I am also a descendant of a very long Shinn line that came to New Jersey from Cambridgeshire, England. My great grandmother was Mary A Shinn, a granddaughter of Clayton Shinn of New Jersey. Clayton is my 3rd great grandfather and is included in the “History of the Shinn Family...” book.
I have enjoyed listening to any and all family stories since I was a child. I would listen to my great grandmother, my great aunt, my grandparents, their siblings and children. Though I did not start seriously spending time on my personal genealogy until the last 15 to 20 years. Now I enjoy working on genealogy everyday. I am still researching my own lines while I also work on sourcing and correcting other profiles, especially in the Swedish group.

Thanks for having a big heart and adopting the Orphaned Profiles. This After Adopting Orphans FAQ explains the special attention those profiles need.
Let me know if you have any questions on how to find and record sources, merge duplicates, clean up gedcom biographies, and interpret the Suggestions report. I'm here to help!

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.
