     It has been called to my attention that not all know about the Beatrice Bayley Inc or "Family Heritage" book.

     This book is mostly a compilation of names apparently taken from old telephone books. There has been a considerable number of complaints to the Post Office, from all over the United States. about this book. It is not a genealogy of a rare surname, it is more of a guide, or how to book. This is not an out and out fraud, but it borders on it.
