The Volunteers and I try our best to get the information correct on all files. We succeed most of the time. As with all projects this size there will be mistakes. Please forgive us as we are only human and we will make mistakes. Mistakes that I hope will be taken with a smile and a nod by our visitors. As with all research, a researcher should always go to original records for conformation of data.
Do send constructive advice and corrections !!
