Continuation of My Notes by Barry O'Connell

I am in the process of grouping notes and interlinking them. So links that were here on this page are now being moved to sub pages. So far I have created the following sub pages:

Notes on Afghanistan - Notes on the Mongols - Notes on Ottoman Osman Othman Osmanli - Notes on the Seljuks - The Mamluk

This may seem a liitle odd but this is the way I learn things. I missed Kindergarden so this is my way of playing which of these things belong together.

This section is at the suggestion of Harold Keshishian. Harold is my dearest friend and at the same time one of my harshest critics. Harold suggested a non-commercial site and that sounded fine with me. I decided to mine open source literature for things that fit the scope of my study and then annotate and over time elaborate on the material.
