About Footnotes : A few words about the footnotes in this website are in order. When I first began writing the books that became this website, "Researching Strong(e) and Strang(e) in Britain and Ireland", 2nd Edition (Rootsweb) , and "The Donegal Strong Puzzle" , I was writing for the traditional print format, and intended the documentation to be in the form of footnotes appearing at the end of each chapter. When I subsequently published the various chapters on the internet, the footnotes were presented in that format. However, as time went on, I found that it was easier to present the documentation of particular points immediately in the screen-text. Simply, it was easier to navigate to the documentation if it was immediately at hand, rather than having to go to the end of the webpage to find the documentation relied upon. Consequently, as my webpages have been added to and updated there are two different means of documentation provided: the "on-screen" text variety, and the traditional footnotes. Anyone curious as to the context in which the material was found may consult further with the references in this Bibliography.

This bibliography includes materials reviewed for inclusion in this text prior to 1997 by David B. Strong, Dale G. Strong, and/or William L. Strong. A string of asterisks preceding any work below indicates it has either not yet been reviewed but is included here to draw attention to the need for further review, or a better citation is required. The list of individuals who gave personal information which has been relied upon in the text includes certain persons who were interviewed by others, or who wrote personal letters which have been used as resource material.

It should also be re-emphasized that there have been many additional references and sources cited after 1997 throughout the website which are not presently (2003) included here. Hopefully, a future update will be able to include such cited material. For now, those interested researchers should be especially careful to note for their own use any materials cited in the various webpages which do not carry a footnote reference.
