Re: Sinclair book

Hi Cousins,
	I have seen the book on Sinclairs and it is not worth the money.  Anyone
who has access to a bunch of phone books can come up with the same
information. It's not much help in a genealogical sense.

> 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,

> 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, Toni
