On Information and Spellings:

You may find other spellings of the names of the individuals listed in our databases.  We have chosen to enter the name as the individual himself spelled it or as a majority of the records found spelling it.

We have done our best to present the spelling, birth place, date of birth, place of death and date of death accurately.  There may be errors.  The schools from which physicians graduated are in many cases self-reported.  They have often been verified in other sources, most should be accurate.

Therefore, we encourage you to do your own research.  As always, we welcome comments, additions and questions.
