Do not uses Wikipedia there is to many faults in there research , the jumble fact with fictions . Sorry Square . Rain you may also want to check out your local library .
I'm sorry, Rain. ghost is right. Wikipedia is good for finding a starting place for more serious research, but definitely not a source of any kind of definitive answers. I should have added that part. It's true, there are too many user entries from people who have no clue whatsoever what they're talking about! I take everything with a grain of salt, I should have mentioned all of the above last night. My only excuse is that I was exhausted, I had a very long and totally miserable day, and I wasn't thinking at all clearly.
I should add that at least in my case, the local library has an extremely
limited section in many significant sections such as comparative religions and non-American history. It makes it very difficult to do any thorough research, sometimes any research at all! Ordering books from another branch is awkward even if you know just what books you're looking for. Your best bet for serious research is to go to the main branch if you can. I've made quite a few of the long drives downtown (45 minutes minimum
drive time) because they have the best selection for research in just about every category you might be interested in and in most areas, you can turn them in at the local branch.
And don't be sorry, ghost! You caught some bad advice on my part and did the right thing! I would much rather be corrected that lead someone astray!
