29cm x 21cm. [iv], 80, 23 pages, printed recto only + 6 pieces. Illustrated wrappers. One of many family history publications published by Family Heritage International, a US mail order surname-related product business which expanded to include an Australian "branch" with a mailing address Sydney. Family Heritage International would send letters addressed as being from someone with the same surname of the recipient stating they had recently completed a family history and attempting to sell a book and other surname-related materials. The book largely contains plagiarised material found on the internet followed by a long list of made up names and addresses. Together with this book is included the original marketing material including 2 letters and a certificate of authenticity. The United States Postal Service filed several cease and desist orders against the company from the late 1980s through 1990 but they continued their shady marketing practices though to 1999 before closing under irony due to "competition from the Internet". Dust spotting to top edge. Shipped Weight: .56 kilos.
