July 2020For various reasons, it has been a long time since I did an update. I have a lot of new material, particularly for the Irish Gumbletons, and it is taking me a while to add it into the database. I decided to do this interim update, which is still lacking much of the material. Hopefully a more comprehensive update will be ready in a few weeks.

30 December 2015 updateThe major change in this update was to make it possible to make small incremental changes to the website. previously, every change, however small, required a full regeneration of the entire site. Now, only those pages that have been changed need to be generated and uploaded.
