our researchers.

Similarly, tell us if you are stuck or have found an error or wish to add information.


We have now completed the merger of this site with our sister site which was set up in 2006 by Frank Skidmore & Warren Skidmore.
We are well along the road to placing the contents of their 2006 CD onto this website.

The material on this website is presented in good faith and, whilst every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, errors can occur. You are advised to always check against the original sources. If you spot any errors or omissions, or you have ideas as to how the website could be improved, do please contact Linda Moffatt
