What an awful shame that you had to pay all of this extra money Yvonne, but
for the information of other Listers, all you have to do is to go to your
nearest LDS Family History Library, give them the money for the C.D.'s and
they will order them in for you, WITHOUT all the added freight and duty
costs. I did that here in Australia, and had mine within a week or so.
Alternatively most countries have an LDS distribution centre, and you can
call them by telephone; quote your credit card number, and you will receive
them very quickly. Diana
