Transcribed by Laurel Baker and posted here with her kind permission.

A couple of notes: first, anything in [ ] is my best guess at the handwriting. If it turns out to be an entry you need I can only urge you to examine the originals, maybe you'll read it differently than I. Next, anything in (CAPS) is my note, anything in (mixed or lower case) is from the original. I have tried to put all surnames in uppercase to make them easier to see.
