Collected Name Resources from LoARs (2010-present)

Articles from Juliana de Luna and Lillia de Vaux

From Juliana Pelican, June 2010: "There is an enormous (and growing) number of resources online that can be useful to heralds and to submitters. Each month, I'm going to post information about some that I think might be useful. If I miss some interesting ones, let me know, because I don't know everything."

From Lillia Pelican, March 2014: "Pelican Emeritus is a hard act to follow. Her name resources series lasted the length of her tenure and covered a wide range of languages. I plan to spotlight some of our lesser-known, but very useful sources from time to time."

This collation of their Cover Letter items was put together by Honorable Lady Adelaide of Iron Mountain.
