Data collection

Collection notes
(circumstances, sources, methods, funding, coverage…):
This Houseman version is a simpler transcription that excludes the identity of the same couple listed in two places on the flyleaf genealogy, e.g. Bel:B1&Bel:1, as done in the 2nd version by White, checked against the census on pages 321-331 of the book. This is the version used in the 1998 publication.
