NOTE: These records have been transcribed from several different sources, either by the coordinator or by other researchers and provided as a starting point to assist you in your research; I've verified as many as I could, but be aware that there may be errors (either mis-spellings on the original records, almost illegible writing on the records, and/or typing errors on my part), so make sure to double check them prior to assuming they're "the gospel truth". I will never deliberately include erroneous information in any part of this site.

If you have records that you'd like to see added to this site, please contact Suzanne and I'll be glad to add them to this collection.
