    All , a HUGE THANK YOU For everyone who contributed to the sheet till then. In just a matter of days nearly half the entries have been transcribed.. this would have taken ages otherwise. Very much appreciated.


    I note the concern on poorly unaccounted -including Unknown causes, and "Died at X" kind of entries. where possible populate the entries and highlight the field with a Red Background so that we know its poorly accounted. i have marked a few that i could find.

    I will be moving the 'done' records to the second sheet in a few hours.
