In compiling the information for this web site, I have not had access to any primary-source historical documents (or microfilm copies thereof). The documents in this list of references, although chosen because they are widely accepted as reliable, usually fail to footnote their statements with references to specific text in primary-source documents.
It should be remembered that all web sites (including this one) are temporary and very few have had peer review. Therefore, I have used web sites as references only when I could find no authoritative printed document.
Please send corrections, additional information, and other opinions via e-mail to Catherine FitzMaurice
