My sources have reported to me that the Shasta Historical Society has TWO copies of my mother's book, and both of them still have the title page intact. Furthermore, on the back side of each title page is MY NAME AND ADDRESS stamped with a rubber stamp, and I have not moved since my mother died. (My mother stamped her copies with my name and address because she new she was terminally ill.)

This means there is NO WAY that the offending copyright violator could NOT have known where to send a letter to inquire about making my mother's book into a database and selling it.

I have also alerted the Shasta Genealogical Society that the same woman has digitized 3 other databases for, and the SGS believes them all to be violations of copyright in 3 of its publications which are still in print and for sale. The SGS knew nothing of this woman even though she lives in Redding, and they did NOT give her permission to digitize their books. We shall see what comes of this.
