Please Note:

      The information on the sites listed below is NOT primary source information.  Although I take care to proofread everything that I do, I make mistakes that I don't catch.  Much of this information is from lists typed by someone else; they also may have made mistakes.
        The only assurance you can have of 100% accuracy is to view the original records for yourself...and then hope that the original recorder was accurate!
