I have not attempted to document my findings here, space and time constraints do not permit me to do so (even if I could). The information presented here is as I have found it, and I make no hard and fast claim that it is "carved in stone", rather, I serve it up to you, fellow family researcher, as a gift to be used as how it pleases you.
