The book is published and doing well. Printed 100; will ship no 60 tomorrow--day 20 after receiving book from printer. May do second printing. Listed book on ebay 3 times with different surnames and states in title. Sold one copy. Direct mailed 400 postcards (and emailed) to names in the book, contributors, and descendants. It seems to go in waves. One book is received and then others in that part of the family order. We shall see how it goes.

So many of us have been sold family tree books that turned out to be far less than imagined. The rip offs are out there. You can understand people's reluctance to be first. Give it time.
