Hello Lancsgen members,
On Christmas Day I made a statement about Dilmond POSTLETHWAITE's forthcoming book in
which I stated the following:
"Hello all POSTLETHWAITE researchers,
I have just received the attached from Sue BANKS. Sue and I have been approached by
Dilmond POSTLETHWAITE in the past for information, which we have both supplied in good
faith. It now appears that Dilmond was only interested in our information for profit. We
both supplied info with no response whatsoever from Dilmond.
I would suggest that in future none of us should supply him with any information
whatsoever. I do not mind providing anyone with information which will help them with
their trees, as a lot of you will know, but I object, most strongly, to providing somebody
with information which I have worked hard for, for their profit. I am in debt up to my
eyeballs and am struggling to make ends meet, this man is attempting to profit by our hard
work, which we supplied in good faith. I have no objection to people making money, but if
they wish to do so they should work for it!
But, what really upsets me, is that I introduced Susan to this man in good faith, thinking
that it would help Susan and I. He deceived me and through me he deceived Susan! Susan, I
This is the wrong time of year for this, but I am angry."
I have been assured by Dilmond POSTLETHWAITE that if I am not descended from John
POSTLETHWAITE of Millom Cumberland
who went to the U.S. and settled in Lancaster, PA in the early 1700s, then the information
that I supplied him with is not included in the book. I assured him that if he would tell
me that my material was not included in his book, then I would issue a retraction.
As Mr. POSTLETHWAITE has done that, I hereby unreservedly retract the above quoted
statement and apologise to him for any slight or hurt that he may have suffered by my
statement. I have included the previous message within this message purely as a reference
for this statement of retraction to have meaning and not to cause him any hurt.
