In the genealogy world, Halbert' is known as a BAD PENNY. They have been
taken to court, so many times, that it's not funny. They have taken over
the name Burk's Peerages (which books had a find reputation, but the
company went bankrupt) so that they may legit themselves.
The books are find if you have a very unusual name, but not if you have a
common name. The list is made up from telephone directories.
You can make up the same kind of book on SINCLAIR without costing you
anything. Just use the internet. There are many SINCLAIR Web sites that
tell the history of SINCLAIR & many that carry the SINCLAIR graphics (e.g.
coats of arms, badge, etc.). Also telephone directory web sites to down
load SINCLAIR names.

>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,
that this Heirloom Edition is expected to be the only printing of the
Sinclair book ever."
>Sounds good. However, The crest above the Sinclair name on the
letter head is not one we're familiar with, there is a "family"
snapshot with a crested plate in the background, yet again different,
and finally it is signed "Sincerely,
>(for) Paul T. Sinclair i.a."
>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,
