>Hello, all:
>This might be a co-incidence, but in the mail today, we received an
amazing offer for a book called "the New World Book of Sinclairs",
only $39.95.  It purports  to have used hard-to-find Sinclair
immigration info, obtained from  ship's records, gen. registers, and
other official records. "Each Sinclair Directory is virtually handmade
to order, and is illustrated in full colour.  Please note, however,

Sinclair book ever."

>Has anyone else been offered this book?  Do you think it's
legitimate?  I'd be interested to hear from any of you.  All the best,
