The author wishes to thank Roger Ingersoll, whose Masonic FTP archives provided substantial portions of this FAQ. Where possible, I have included specific credits to the authors of those files, though several are anonymous. Note that one of the sources credited here is FMBITS.TXT, which has the following disclaimer as its preface: "With apologies, the original source for the following information has been lost. It probably came from either the Philatethes or the Southern California Research Lodge. The file has been stored in my Computer for a couple of years. Enjoy! William N.
