Hi - I don't think we are closely related but my grandfather came from Orkney as well - his name was John and he had 11 brothers & sisters and he was the only one to come to the US. I traveled to Orkney and literally knocked on farmhouse doors to find relatives and I found cousins! And the person who finally helped me was Janice Sinclair - she was wonderful and had my whole family tree on her kitchen table by the time I arrived! She introduced me to my cousins who have since visited America. I responded to Robert Isbister of Rendall for more info. We are planning on going back to Orkney a year from August to visit these wonderful people and we correspond via internet regularly. If you care to respond to me I would love to hear from you. Us Isbisters have to stick together! Best Regards, Nancy
