The information on this site is collected from many sources. Most importantly the many contributions by visitors to this site. I have tried to give credit to the people who contributed to this site by mentioning their names and e-mail addresses, when possible: some contributions were anonymous and some poeple did not want to have their names or addresses listed.
Apart from the above I also compiled information from the following references works, which I have at home:
