My question then is this: What happened to the review book I sent and the
Post Office delivered in Logan on June 14, 2004? I had reviewed Evertons'
book acceptance policy on-line and called in early June to make sure they
would print a review (which the submitter is asked to write) for "Pioneer
Cemeteries of Pine and Richland Townships, Allegheny County, PA." My little
society, the North Hills Genealogists, self-published this book and one for
Hampton Twp. and is working on the next one on Franklin Park Boro and
Marshall Twp. We need to stimulate sales if we are to do the current project
as it is in danger of being shelved.

So I wonder why they led me to believe just a month ago that everything was
alright? And what happened to my book? Will it be warehoused until the City
of Logan can figure out what to do with the collection?
