Once we have enough information we will create the Exhibit and advise you how to get to it on your computer where you can advise us where to correct, add-to, delete, etc.
There is no charge for this – although donations keep us going.
Copy the basic information requests above and then paste them on to a “Word” document. Add a number of spaces between each item requested and then just fill in all the information on the “Word” document which will expand at each question as you add material.
