Ontario and overseas. The ages of the children were often given as well. The

Subject: [TSL] anyone from Detroit?
A few weeks ago, one of our listers posted information from the book below.
I decided I wanted to purchase a copy of the book for myself. It was
found on Amazon, so I placed an order. This morning, Amazon sent me a
message saying they were cancelling my order, as they couldn't fill it. I
searched on the second-hand books websites, and couldn't find a copy there
If anyone has contacts with the publisher "Detroit Society for Genealogical
Research" could you please inquire whether I am still able to purchase a
copy of this book? All suggestions gratefully accepted.
