I think Frank had a harder time believing her because he is from a culture with a strong focus on science and explanation of the supernatural through science. Culturally speaking, Jamie’s time was steeped in Superstition and strong beliefs in those things as real. Jamie was also aware of the folklore surrounding people traveling through the stones, that made it easier for him to believe it.

Yeah, by the time you get to book 7 or 8 or whatever it is you find out that Frank did believe her, in his own way. Enough to tell B. to go there and be safe with J&C.

Good points about Frank and Jamie and their different belief systems.

I think Frank eventually believed because he did the same research that Roger did and found the historical evidence that proved Claire’s story. I wouldn’t be surprised if he found the deed to Lallybroch with Claire’s signature on it – there’s the proof positive he would have needed.

Totally agree that Frank very much believed Claire. He knew Brianna, if not Claire, would eventually go “looking” for Jamie. That’s why he put the gravestone there, that’s why he taught Brianna how to shoot, etc.
