Hmm. I suppose my sister is most famous (not most successful). She's been in USA Today, NBC News and other publications for her research.
My wife's family goes back to the Prescotts (Mayflower, Sam Prescott midnight ride of Paul Revere), I'm not sure exactly which ones. She's so thoroughly Irish otherwise that it's like a badge of shame.
I worked in the White House... and went to high school with Earl Kelley.. Other than that, the first Commandant of the Coast Guard adopted my gggrandmother.
Great-Uncle is a voice over actor. Older folks may have heard his work for "Frontline" series on PBS, younger generations would know him as the voice in the Dos Equis "most interesting man in the world" commercials (not the actor, but the voice). You can almost always find his work on random documentaries on history/discovery/natgeo channels.
My oldest brother, Leon "Pete" Sinclair, now passed away, was a famous mountain climber during his time. He had a first ascent up McKinley (Denali), invited on the first American Everest Expedition in 1963 (though declined), head mountain ranger in the Grand Tetons for ten years, written up in Sports Illustrated for one mountain rescue he led (Title: "The night of the one-eyed devils"), awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for another rescue he led. A documentary was made of the latter, called "The Grand Rescue." I believe it currently is on IMDBtv.
