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.
