To avoid errors I have used the English form of dating in the notation, that is, day, month, year; thus May 9, 1917 is 9/5/1917.
Pagination in some sources, especially the Livingstone Mail and District Notebooks, is erratic; where no page is given, none was available.
In the spelling of names, particularly of informants, I have used the spelling they use themselves. This produces some inconsistency; for instance, some will use "Ha-," others "Sia-."
I have arbitrarily deleted the periods in acronyms of over two letters.
