Receipts from the Dirks case

This is one of the many receipts in the partition suit that was discussed in Issue 4-2. We’re not going to discuss these receipts in an upcoming issue, but some of them had stamps of where they were signed which was helpful. Local heirs apparently had no such address on their receipts, but but others had the name of the bank where the apparent check or something was cashed, thus providing a clues as to residence. receipt

Webinar Sales to go on Hiatus 12 September

To allow me to focus on writing and research and on writing Casefile Clues–which I really love and want to spend more time on, I’m taking a hiatus from webinar and webinar sales effective 5:00 pm central time on 12 September. We’ll still support issues you’ve had with ordered presentations, but we’re going to put sales and webinar presentations on hiatus so I can concentrate on blogging and Casefile Clues. The webinar order page will be operational until then.

Questions regarding orders should be sent to me at mjnrootdig@gmail.com.
