There are and will be errors in this page - do not use it as your only source of reference, rather as a stepping stone to the firmer source materials. Make sure you go to the original source and check each entry yourself.
I cannot stress this enough - my sources were BADLY photocopied sheets and I often GUESSED/ASSUMED the spelling and/or word. To assist you I have added, in hyperlinked superscript, the reference number next to each piece of information
