You can find sources, if there is one, by clicking on the number in brackets [xxx] alongside the citation. If the citation seems credible, I include the source. If there are two conflicting pieces of data, I include both with sources. If the data seems right, but the source not known to me I will just include the data, to be confirmed at a later date. If a name is given as a source, I can probably supply the EMAIL address if you want to contact directly.
