JSTOR Request[edit]


Nancy Amoury Combs in Prosecutor v. Plavšić. Case No. IT-00-39&40/1-S

Bijeljina massacre

Would like to request a simple "find and quote" for a JSTOR source. Could the responding user please do a search for "kiss" in relation a photographed of Plavsic kissing Zeljko Raznjatovic, known as Arkan. I would like to request that the sentence preceding and after the relevant sentence(/s) be included in the quote copy. E.g. BBC gives:
The self-styled "Serbian Iron Lady" once defended the purge of Bosnian non-Serbs as "a natural phenomenon" not a war crime.
In 1992, a widely-circulated photographed showed her stepping over the body of a dead Muslim civilian to kiss the notorious Serb warlord Zeljko Raznjatovic, known as Arkan.
But a decade later, she pleaded guilty to crimes against humanity, and apologised to "all the innocent victims of the Bosnian war - Muslims, Croats and Serbs alike".

--Cheers, Drcrazy102 (talk) 01:01, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

@Drcrazy102: The only result of "kiss" I found was in the references on page 990. Here's your sentences:

  1. Alissa J. Rubin, Former Serb Leader's Admission of Guilt Alienates Compatriots, L.A. TIMES, Dec. 16, 2002, at A4.
  2. A notorious photograph taken during the first days of the conflict showed Plavsic stepping over the body of a dead Muslim civilian to kiss the murderous Serbian warlord Zeljko Rainjatovic, better known as Arkan, greeting him as a patriot.
  3. Bill Glauber, Sentence Hearings Start for Iron Lady of Balkans, CHI. TRIB., Dec. 17, 2002, at 3. (source of sentence #2) L.A. Times is here, while the one you need, Chicago Tribune, is here --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 01:58, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
MrLinkinPark333; thanks for that. Could I be a bit more of a pain and ask if there was a picture included for the source, or was it just a footnote of text? Cheers, Drcrazy102 (talk) 02:11, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
@Drcrazy102: Just a block of text for the footnote (last three sentences). You might be able to check the references in JSTOR (#7). --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 02:17, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Journal of Heritage Tourism[edit]


Dear editors: There's a draft article Draft:Roots tourism which could be used to expand Genealogy tourism, which is poorly sourced and could use information about Africa. However, the text is very polished, and its creator is the author of one of the references, HERE. Before merging in any content, I'd like to check to make sure there aren't copyright problems. Does anyone have access to this journal? I'm not willing to pay $40 to look at the article.—Anne Delong (talk) 20:02, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, Czar and Dr Lol for your helpful suggestions. I was able to access the document, and found that, aside from one small section, it seems to be different text from the draft, which is encouraging.

Is Dermatofibroma an type of Dispersion?[edit]

How does a Researcher find articles of multiple references and data information of the subject disambiguation Dermatofibroma. I thought this search term was built on the account of many subjects often in wreath of provisional conclusiveness. And is often confused of a chain of events influenced by the former. Please write me I have a page called Dispersion and giving "It" the power within certain rights and building its constructionist. --PCruiser (talk) 21:14, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi, PCruiser, it's not clear which Wikipedia article you are seeking to improve. Is it Dermatofibroma? If so, what specific publication, study, or article are you seeking access to that you are unable to access on your own? If you simply have general question(s) about a subject, you may ask the question(s) at one of the subgroups of WP:Reference desk. If you are seeking to improve a medical article on Wikipedia (not your own site or webpage or blog), you may want to query Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine. If none of these suggestions fit your needs, I think you need to make your question clearer and also indicate how it relates to improving a Wikipedia article. Thank you. Softlavender (talk) 04:11, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
@PCruiser:, let me see if I can help. If this doesn't answer it, or you can't clarify what paper you are asking for, this question may be moved to the WP:Reference desk
Many different search terms are associated with the subject sometimes called Dermatofibroma. Many synonyms are used both in Wikipedia and in databases of medical research.
You asked about "disambiguation" but confusingly, also used the word "dispersion". As you are apparently not a native English speaker, I'll assume you are interested in how to find one subject that has several search terms associated with it.
The Wikipedia article on the subject is actually named Benign fibrous histiocytoma. But a search of Wikipedia for Dermatofibroma redirects you to the identical article as the one linked in the previous sentence. Two search terms; one article.
The first sentence reads: "Benign fibrous histiocytomas (also known as Dermal dendrocytoma, Dermatofibroma, Fibrous dermatofibroma, Fibrous histiocytoma, Fibroma simplex, Nodular subepidermal fibrosis, and Sclerosing hemangioma are benign skin growths." A Wikipedia search for any of those terms will lead to the same article. None of the other terms have their own article so none are hyperlinked - they all refer to the same thing, according to Wikipedia.
Outside Wikipedia, medical researchers use a standard vocabulary -- Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) -- to find professionally indexed medical research. So, if you are using PubMed to find research articles, first consult MeSH to find the standard search term - and its acceptable synonyms (as well as related, or more specific, search terms). See help and tutorials on MeSH for details. Like Wikipedia, many search terms are treated as true synonyms for a standard search term. Searching for one leads to the same result as searching for another. Like Wikipedia, the current preferred term for "Dermaotofibroma" in the 2016 MeSH is ... see for yourself by copying and pasting Dermatofibroma in the search box of the MeSH Browser. Names next to "entry term" are synonyms. See here.
Hope that answers your question. In the future, if you are not looking for a specific research paper please don't ask on this Resource Exchange, but ask such general questions at the WP:Reference desk, as suggested above by Softlavendar. -- Paulscrawl (talk) 10:25, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
@PCruiser:if you are referring to your draft article, Dispersion, I'm afraid my answer was a waste of my time and I have struck it out. We speak languages that are not translatable by any person or machine. Your notion of

Dispersion. A diaphragm is giving it the power. Contrivingly it is un avoidable; but has its roots in sin. Sacred is the Graceful; and not spoiled of the spirit we can live with others.

makes absolutely no sense and will never be published in any form on Wikipedia. You are wasting your time here, as well as ours. -- Paulscrawl (talk) 17:52, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
I suspect PCruiser might be an artificial intelligence experiment that is using WP as a type of Turing test. Nothing this user has done on WP makes any sense at all - it's all just word salad and random phrases from various sources. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 09:53, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
@Dodger67:, thank you, I suspect you are right. I thought I was charitably dealing with a very poor machine translation, but your theory makes more sense. Can't believe I fell for it.
Note to self: check user contributions before replying to anything on Reference Desk or Resource Exchange.
Admins or others: I think this beautiful, botful request can be archived, if it can't be mercifully obliterated from Internet memory for all time. Please pursue the value of PCruiser's "contributions" through the usual channels. -- Paulscrawl (talk) 16:09, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

@Torana:, thanks alot! Havent really been active these days, so therefore I only just checked it. Really thanks for the effort man. Those pages will be of great usage for several of the aforementioned articles. Btw, regarding the other title (Hearn 2009), would it be the best for me to open a new section as this request has moved up quite abit already in the meanwhile (incl. the "messy-look" due to our dialogue?)

Jenner, Philip N. "The final liquids of middle Khmer." on ProQuest or De Gruyter or ???[edit]

Jenner, Philip N. "The final liquids of middle Khmer." STUF-Language Typology and Universals 28.1-6 (1975): 599-609.

I found one copy available here (a paywall) and it is also available through ProQuest here, but I no longer have access to that either.

We currently have no article on Middle Khmer but I've been working on a draft offline for a couple weeks now that will be a comprehensive WP article. This paper is the only one I know of that deals exclusively with final liquids (an important issue in reconstructing Middle and Old Khmer) so it would be of immense value to the new article.

Bull Arab (dog) encyclopaedic reference[edit]

I am looking for encyclopaedic reference on the Bull Arab, an Australian dog. They are typically described as comprised of 50% English Bull Terrier, 25% Greyhound and 25% German Short Pointer. The breed is not yet registered but has become very popular in Australia. I don't have easy access to a library full of dog books, but seeking assistance from someone who does who could check the literally dozens (if not hundreds) of dog reference books and find references.AWHS (talk) 09:53, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Can I add that I have trawled Google and found virtually every online reference, newspapers, etc. The chief problem is that most are not encyclopaedic references, so little detail like height, weight etc needs to be supported. AWHS (talk) 00:02, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
@Majormax: - in case you haven't asked there already, this sounds like a project for Wikipedia:WikiProject Dogs. The resource exchange seems more geared to handle citations than project-y research requests. I see that the breed is mentioned in a handful of scholarly articles (from mainly in an Australian/disease surveillance context; another idea would be to find an exact citation by checking with the sort of people who might be *writing* those sections of reference books. Hope you find something! Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 16:51, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
@Jodi.a.schneider: - Thanks Jodi, I will look at that. I have asked Project Dogs to help but they are mainly focussed on the recognised breeds (there are so many). There is a lot of dog 'snobbery' and I this article is constantly the subject of edit wars by breeders. I was hoping that some good articles would assist. There are so many dog books around, but few modern books are searchable on Google.AWHS (talk) 02:33, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
@Majormax: Sorry to hear about the snobbery. For edit wars, maybe an admin could help? You could also try at Wikipedia:WikiProject Australian biota. And perhaps a local library would have some relevant books -- but it does look like a very niche (though certainly well-recognized) topic. Wish you luck!

Weik article and Florida Bicentennial Trail[edit]

I have been working on a couple of articles over in the Geography section, and I have encountered a couple of sources that I would like to use, but I do not have access to.

1.)I found that the article "The Role of Ethnogenesis and Organization in the Development of African-American Settlements: an African Seminole Model" by Dr. Terrance M. Weik, which was published in the International Journal of Historical Archaelogy June 2009 edition (Vol. 13, No. 2), contained information about the area that I have been editing. I registered with JSTOR's Register & Read program, but the article is not accessible with my type of account. I am an alumna of a college, but I am not a member of the alumni association.

2.) I came across a few excerpts from the Tampa Tribune article "Sumpter Countians Ambush State on Bicentennial Trail" (published February 16, 1976) on the SeminoleWar blog. I would like to access the article. (Note: Sumpter also could be spelled "Sumter" in the article's title as "Sumter" is the correct spelling of the county's name.)

Could I please have access to these two? SciGal (talk) 17:36, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Guy from Tampa here. This is from memory so it may be wrong, but it's my understanding that the Trib is only available electronically back to the 1990s, and to go back further would require microfilm. However, the nearby St. Pete Times is available on Google News back to the 19th century, so you might find a similar article there. Gamaliel (talk) 18:15, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion. I wasn't able to find the exact article, but I was able to find an article from the Ocala Star-Banner people asking the Sumter County commissioners about cleaning Dade Battlefield in 1976 and a St. Pete Times article about the fight over the removal of a fence at the park. (Pardon the informal title for the park; I know people from Sumter County, and that is one of two ways I have heard residents refer to the park.) SciGal (talk) 20:05, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

May I ask a question? Within the last two weeks, I found a copy of the Weik's article on Scribd. Can I use that? SciGal (talk) 16:49, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I noted earlier this week that it was a preview and not the full article. SciGal (talk) 16:15, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
Personally, I would like to have the full article, please. SciGal (talk) 16:33, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
@SciGal: I've revived this stale request. I've sent the Ethnogenesis article on October 14th 2015. I also unremoved the striked out second reference because you have not received the Tampa Tribune article. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 19:49, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

Overview or reference works or articles on Jews as an ethnic group[edit]

I am seeking shortish pieces, along the lines of encyclopedia or dictionary articles, relating specifically to how Jews are described or defined in terms of ethnic groups and ethnoreligious groups. Yes, I know there are a lot of such articles, and any and all would be welcome, to help provide an indicator of how other reference sources deal with the topic. Two specific sources which might be particularly relevant include the articles in the Harvard Encyclopedia of Ethnic Groups and Ethnic Groups of Europe: An Encyclopedia, but any other similar works of a similar focus would be particularly useful.

This request is being made pursuant to an existing comment at WP:NORN#Definition of Jews. Gross original research/WP:SYNTH violation regarding complaints about the lead of the article on Jews. John Carter (talk) 17:02, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

John Carter, are you looking for more general pieces, such as the Oxford English Dictionary entry and the Britannica article, or are you looking for more focused sources, such as the two you cite? John M Baker (talk) 19:54, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
The two specifically mentioned might be the most useful, given their focus. But, at the same time, any other encyclopedic type works like like Encyclopedia Britannica or any other works of a roughly encyclopedic nature regarding the topic might help indicate how they structure their lede section, which seems to be the basis of the problem here.John Carter (talk) 19:56, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
John Carter, I've emailed you the "Jew" articles from Britannica, the OED, Merriam-Webster Unabridged, The Oxford Companion to the Bible, and A Concise Companion to the Jewish Religion. John M Baker (talk) 22:08, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

@LeadSongDog:That could be possible. Are you looking for the actual articles, or just confirmation that he wrote these articles?--MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 21:58, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
Confirmation that they were published. The suspicion is that they were incorrectly cited in the book, but there are other possible explanations.LeadSongDog come howl! 07:34, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
@LeadSongDog:These citations also appear on Not all of this author's works are in PubMed, nor does every scholarly work have a DOI. Especially pre-1996, there are many papers not online!
I find both of these citations in reputable databases, and according to Ullrich's BOTH of those journals are only online since 2001. My guess is that both of these are abstracts: they are each one page; the "A" in page numbers is commonly used in medical journals for appendices containing "non-archival" publications.
"Antinuclear Antibodies, Lipid Disturbances and Central Nervous System Imaging Abnormalities in Silicone Breast Implant Users"
Where found:
  • cited with the mention "abstract" by a 2000 book published by the Institute of Medicine (IoM), called Safety of silicone breast implants; see page 451 here:
  • citation mentioned in Scopus as cited by a review article Lewy wrote in 1996
"Autoimmune Markers and Imaging Abnormalities in Silicone Breast Implant Users"
  • citation appears in Web of Science (the whole journal was indexed)
Regarding Google Scholar not having them on "his page" -- it has both of them as citations. Individuals curate their own "Google Citations" pages there.
If you are trying to check the claim in the article that he has published about breast implant safety, the reference list from the IoM book convinces me of that. Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 03:48, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
thank you. According to the NLM that issue 43(2) should be Pubmed indexed and likewise issue 42(2),, but the articles are not shown, hence my puzzlement. LeadSongDog come howl! 05:20, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

@John M Baker: @Czar: So that means it should be somewhere between April 1993-October 2000. At least it narrows it down a bit. What date did you find the Sunday Times article? I'd assume that the other review would be around the same time too. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:28, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
The Times review was April 23, 1993. John M Baker (talk) 03:56, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Spotted green pigeon papers[edit]


For Spotted green pigeon, thanks. --FunkMonk (talk) 18:06, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

@Jodi.a.schneider: I think you intended to ping requester @FunkMonk: - I'm not seeking information on this topic, but supplied one article. Worldbruce (talk) 18:12, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
I've emailed the author, but he won't be answering emails until a few days. FunkMonk (talk) 18:17, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Dreamworld Tibet: Western illusions, Martin Brauen (or other material about "singing bowls")[edit]

  • Dreamworld Tibet: Western illusions, Martin Brauen, Orchid Press, ISBN 9745240516.

The requested part starts with "A special category of such Dharma products is constituted by the allegedly Tibetan ‘singing bowls’, which have nothing to do with Tibet (...)".

Note that google scholar will find you a pdf but that is only an excerpt.

This link says so-called "Tibetan singing bowls" are a Western invention from the 1960s, in which case singing bowl is almost a hoax article. The link is a personal website from an anthropology student, so hardly good enough, hence the call for the primary reference it quotes.

Any related material from reputable sources is appreciated, of course.

--Tigraan (talk) 13:27, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

@Tigraan: For what it's worth, here are the WorldCat libraries listing holdings for this 2004 book, Dreamworld Tibet: Western illusions: Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 17:04, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
@Tigraan: Does the German edition Traumwelt Tibet also help you? --Dr Lol (talk) 15:01, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
@Dr Lol: I can read German, though with difficulties. I guess that would do, if the correct passage can be found. Tigraan (talk) 13:02, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Looking for articles from The Grand Rapids Press, unsure of date[edit]

Have hard copies of these articles, but am unable to find online links that I can cite them too. Articles are are cut out from full newspaper pages, so not all information is accessible.

1) Titled "Owner of sport Center proves that a career change can pay off"

  Author: Robert Trost
  Publisher: The Grand Rapids Press
  Quote from first Paragraph: "The 1936, 10 1/2 pound, Detroit-made Clarke Troller hanging on a wall near the front entrance to Van's Sport Center at 1855 Alpine St NW is dwarfed by the 1992, v-6, 150 horsepower Evinrude outboard motor displayed below."

2) Title: "Van's Specializes in repairs"

   Author and publisher unknown
   Quote: "With 11,000 square feet indoors and 2 1/2 fenced acres outdoors, Van's Sport Center has plenty of room to store and repair marine equipment"

-- (talk) 16:30, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Greeting Molly. Just FYI: you don't have to have an online version to use it as a Wikipedia reference. It is best if you do but its not a requirement. Although, you do need some basic info such as the name of the paper, magazine, etc. where the reference was published so IMO number 2 is not a legitimate reference. I searched for both but couldn't find them, perhaps someone else will have more luck. Also, if you are going to be editing I suggest you establish a Wikipedia user ID rather than using your IP address. It just takes a second and it makes it easier to collaborate with other Wikipedians. Cheers. --MadScientistX11 (talk) 17:09, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
If I found the right Robert Trost, he wrote articles for the newspaper from 1974-1998.--MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 19:29, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Smalley, The British Expeditionary Force, 1939-40; help with page numbers[edit]


  • Smalley, Edward (2015). The British Expeditionary Force, 1939-40. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan. ISBN 978-1-137-49419-1.

Hi, I have been able to access the above source on Google Books were I was able to obtain some information about the 48th (South Midland) Division. However, no page numbers are displayed on this version. Does anyone have access to the book, and can help citing the pages used? Kind regards --EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 00:57, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

I will check with my local when I next have time, although I don't think they will be able to help. Here is hoping they can come through this time.EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 13:27, 24 December 2015 (UTC)
@EnigmaMcmxc:Searching for "48th" within that text identifies page numbers: [28]. If you select "order by pages" they are displayed in order, with the final match being the index, which lists the page numbers as "19, 88-9, 90, 91, 101, 119, 120-1, 123, 126, 151, 153, 159, 162, 170, 210". Could you clarify which pages are relevant? LeadSongDog come howl! 18:25, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
@LeadSongDog: I apologize for the delay in responding. I did not realize I could do that, nor that the pages matched up with the index. Thank you very much for the assistance, I have amended the article accordingly.
PS: My local library is still worthless! Ha!EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 23:12, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Shirnengiin Ayuush[edit]



I'm having trouble finding relilable sources for Shirnengiin Ayuush. I'm not quite sure if this is a real person or not. The references given don't seem to mention him, but I'll like to double check before nominating for deletion.

  1. Studies on Mongolia: proceedings of the First North American Conference on Mongolian Studies Volume 1978 by Henry G. Schwartz (1979)
  2. Mongolia: a profile by Viktor Porfirievich Petrov (1970) p. 131
  3. Culture and the Asian tradition by J. F. Conceicao (1974) p. 95.

Searching via the given Google Books links doesn't mention him. His last name may be Ayush or Ayusi, but I'm not getting anything. There is also a link to an Encyclopedia Britannica that mentions his name, which could mean there's an article in there about him. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 05:52, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

The Britannica article on Mongolian Literature mentions in passing that a Shirnengiin Ayush (Ayusi) died during the purges of the late 1930s. John M Baker (talk) 02:08, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
I did see that. I thought because he was mentioned briefly in the article, there might be a full article in the encyclopedia on him as well. Guess not. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 02:47, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
No other references in Britannica to Ayusi, Ayush, or Ayuush. John M Baker (talk) 06:00, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Alright, I crossed out that part. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:06, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Just looking at what is available on Google Books for the references cited in our article, I note that Conceicao mentions him (as S. Ayush) and Petrov mentions his opera, Princess Dolgor and Arat Damdin (mentioned in our article as Arat Damdin and Princess Dolgor). There is apparently a reference to the opera in Schwarz, too, although I can't tell what it says. So it appears to me that this was a real person. John M Baker (talk) 01:18, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
Did you look using those links provided in the references? I see no mentions of his name in any of the Google Books. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 01:31, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
Yes, using those links I searched for the three spellings of his name (there may be others I don't know about, since it's a transliteration of whatever they speak in Mongolia), and I searched for "Dolgor," with the findings mentioned in my previous post. John M Baker (talk) 03:05, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
Ahh i was looking without capital A. I hope there's more reliable resources instead of passing mentions. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 03:40, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
Update: I was emailed #2 and #3 by Dr. Lol. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:29, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
@MrLinkinPark333: let me know if you still need something from Studies on Mongolia: proceedings of the First North American Conference on Mongolian Studies, my library has a print copy in storage. There is also a book review Studies on Mongolia. Proceedings of the First North American Conference on Mongolian Studies by Nugent, Philip. Pacific Affairs, 12/1979 available on JSTOR -- which suggests that the relevant article is perhaps in Section 1 ("The Three Sorrowing Hills," the pioneer Mongolian opera (W. Wu) -- not written by this person). This review also notes issues with different transliterations of the names.
Other notes:
My research also turned up a mention of a different spelling with birth/death years off by one: Sh. Aiusha (1904–37), from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979), entry on Mongolian People's Republic
And I will also add a likely older reference: Mongolian historian G. Badraha "From the history of Mongolian music," written in 1937 (via "The problem of periodization of the musical culture of Mongolia", Badamzhavyn Batjargal, thesis defended in 2000 in Moscow)

Request for document cited multiple times in International Crimes Tribunal (Bangladesh)[edit]

Hi, I'm looking for Haq, M. Zahurul (5 August 2011). M.N. Schmitt, Louise Arimatsu, T. McCormack, ed. Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law - 2010 (1st ed.). Springer. p. 463. ISBN 978-9067048101. which is cited multiple times in International Crimes Tribunal (Bangladesh). Based on what I found online (no access to the full document) the original publication doesn't run more than 400 pages so at a minimum I think that needs to be fixed. More specifically, I'd like to know if the source confirms that the UN initially supported the tribunal and whether the US offered assistance, which the citation is used to justify in the entry. Thanks!--Bangabandhu (talk) 07:06, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

@Bangabandhu: If this is the right one on Springer, the book is almost 700 pages (including the reports, schemes, and bibliography). The article you need starts on p. 462 in the chapter named Correspondents reports. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 19:12, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
@Bangabandhu: I was able to find the relevant page online here, and have added the url to the citation in the article. I haven't checked it word-for-word, but at first reading it seems to support the statements where cited. Worldbruce (talk) 06:43, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
@Worldbruce: Thanks for the link. I think I was confused by an incomplete listing of the table of contents which excluded the "Correspondent's Report" section. Bangabandhu (talk)
@Bangabandhu: Are you looking for the actual article itself, or confirmation that the article supports the reference? --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 21:10, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
My main concern was the accuracy of the citation, which I'll accept as confirmed. I would like to read the article, though I sense from the list of queries on this page that there are other, more pressing requests. Thanks for your help. Bangabandhu (talk) 05:44, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

The History of My Kuamo'o-Sun Family of Hilo & Honolulu, Hawaii[edit]

  • William Afong Kaipo Kuamo'o (2006). The History of My Kuamo'o-Sun Family of Hilo & Honolulu, Hawaii. Scottsdale Arizona: OroViejo Publishing.

Is this a real source?--KAVEBEAR (talk) 22:33, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

@KAVEBEAR: I don't think so. I see hits on ancestry sites, but I don't believe it's legit. I've also found another source attributed to him:
  • William Afong Kaipo Kuamoo (April 2010). "The PoʻoKahuna Prince Who Would be King of Hawaii: The Battle of Kuamoo". Oʻiwi: The Native Hawaiian Journal (University of Hawaii Press) 4.

If I look at volume 4, his name isn't there. He also claims that it's located in one of the libraries at the University of Hawaii, but a search on the university's library catalog gives nothing. Also note: this supposed author has been vandalizing talk pages using different IP addresses. See here and here. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 00:11, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I tried searching "OroViejo Publishing" but found nothing and wonder if he just made that up. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:16, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Marking this as resolved. It's clear this source doesn't exist. ~ RobTalk 04:51, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Don't have access to the book itself; but about 75% of it seems to be on Google Books. - Note that this author seems to have produced a variety of papers on the subject ([29]) almost any of which I could access.-- Elmidae 14:05, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Oh sorry - that might have been a misunderstanding. I do not have access to the book itself, as I said (it's not in the UCT library).
