The birth announcement does give enough information for Frank to trace Brianna into the past. I know we discussed this somewhere... but where? *scratching head*

Good catch! It was noticed on CompuServe, too, and recieved this
cryptic (of course!) response from Diana along with a "wait and see".
This is my newest addition to the theory: Frank discovers something about Brianna having to do with the American Revolution. If this is so, she has got to go back. Unless... yikes! I hate it when I talk myself out of my own theories!
... Brianna's rifle design is enough to make her dangerous.
In support of my theory:
1. Rifle design in ABOSAA.
2. Frank's letter in ECHO.
3 In Fiery Cross, we learn Frank taught Brianna to hunt and shoot.
4. In ABOSAA, Claire recalls Frank having a original of the Lexington Alarm
hanging in the hall of their house.
5. In Voyager, when Frank tells Claire to continue with medical school:
Frank studied the American Revolution.
Voyager p86 wrote:He squeezed my hand gently and let it go, turning to reach behind him for one of the books on the shelf beside the table.
It was one of his references, Woodhill's Patriots, a series of profiles of the American Founding Fathers.
This opens a whole 'nuther can of worms.
Did Frank not only find Jamie in Scotland, but also the Revolutionary War?
