Sinclairs and Religion

There is no separating history and genealogy from religion. Especially in the years when many of our ancestors emigrated, religion was one of the main driving forces of politics and family. The Sinclair motto is Commit Thy Work To God.

One source for religious history is Scotch-Irish: A Social History, by James Leyburn.
