"....
In a publication dealing with vital statistics, dates, places, events, personal names, and individual details, one might ask whether inaccuracies have found their way into the text?
Peter answers this question himself on the first page of his Introduction.
He says that although the unknowns he faced when he started the project have been reduced,
"ADDITIONAL ANALYSIS AND STILL UNDISCOVERED EVIDENCE WILL FURTHER REDUCE THE UNKNOWNS IN THE FUTURE.".....
[from the foreword by C. A. Weslager]
