The information presented here maintains the spellings and abbreviations of the original material. Mentions of other names that exist in the book have been converted to hyperlinks. No new text has been inserted in this process. While many of the links will be to not-yet-existent pages, it is hoped that this enhances rather than detracts from the material. After enough time (years?), all the links should be valid.
