Some coments:  While this document has been dated 1962, it should be noted that there are many pages in the document that have dates later than 1962.  It appears that it was updated from time to time with some footnotes added as late as 1995.  Also the document contains words or expressions that are not considered politically correct at this time.  However, no changes have been made to the original document. It is presented here exactly as it was compiled by the descendants of Joe and Della Burkett.
