Would this be okay or is it a no-no?
Thanks in advance for any and all replies!
I do not see any problem using said info, for strictly informational purposes, if the info is credible, I am not aware of any copy right issues concerning reproduction of this type.
I would refrain from naming any real names in the post, unless it was common historical knowledge. Hope that helps.
