Hi Sally,

Is the "frame" appearing correctly in the left hand side of your screen?
On my (Netscape) browser the only thing that appears is their logo, until I
click on the frame area, then select EDIT and then SELECT ALL from the
pull-down menu.  This then shows a number of selection categories in the
frame. Methinks the site was probably built with a leaning towards the
Microsoft Internet Explorer type of browser, hence the problem with the
frame in Netscape.

To access the Sinclair stuff, I clicked "Personal Name" then "Family Name".

When you click on the name of the document/letter, information appears
detailing which branch of the archives holds that particular item. I think
you have to write to them if you require further information, or copies.  I
was not suggesting that the documents could be viewed online. Apologies for
any confusion.
