B. QUERIES ON HABSBURG
You are welcome to post queries to the list if they fall within the scope
of the list and go beyond simple library reference questions. The editors
will return any research problem to the originator for elaboration that
does not describe it in sufficient detail to interest the general
membership and provide a basis for discussion, or that does not indicate
what sources you have already consulted. In September 1997 HABSBURG
adopted guidelines for questions posted to the list. You may view them on
