  The Atlantic Conference is a not-for-profit company whose sole aim is to further the study of early trans-Atlantic contact. The organization is run by Steve St. Clair of the US, Mark Staveley of Canada, Niven Sinclair of the U.K. and  William Mann of Canada.

Steve, Mark, Niven and Bill are not scientists. We are amateur historians.

Niven is a recently retired entrepreneur from the U.K. who has devoted decades  to understanding the history of the Sinclair family. His tireless efforts have uncovered and interpreted documents, relics and much more for Sinclair and Native families worldwide.

Mark is a PhD Candidate at the Memorial University of Newfoundland (St. John's, NL) where he is studying Computer Science and Computational Chemistry. Mark's research involves the creation of tools that will uniquely identify and categorize different chemical structures and reactions based on extracted computational information.

When he's not running his advertising firm (late at night when he really should be sleeping) Steve runs the Sinclair family worldwide DNA project and applies a rigor  to it inspired by the works of specialists like those who will speak at the Atlantic Conference.

Bill is a planning and development consultant with over 30 years experience. He has managed two of the largest public/private municipal partnerships in Canada. He is 1/8th Algonquin and has earned the trust and admiration of the leaders of many Native North American Tribes.
