   Oct-29-20 Arthur Compton Ellis
John Saunders: <Ellis had helped in the compilation of the 1913 "Yearbook of Chess", edited by Edith Michell, wife of Reginald Pryce Michell.> The series of chess yearbooks published before WW1 were not edited by Edith Michell (as I too had thought until today) but by Edward Algernon ...
   Oct-28-20 James Mahood
John Saunders: The date of death given for James Mahood's wife in the biographical details at the top of the page (Last updated: 2017-07-03 05:27:00) is wrong. Her death was reported in the Times, Wednesday, May 25, 1949, page 1. Violet Maud, née Daintry, died 22 May 1949 at Mapledor, Regent
   Oct-13-20 Shirov vs Lanka, 1988

   Oct-11-20 Shirov vs Ozolinsh, 1985

   Sep-01-20 Baratz vs Menchik, 1928
John Saunders: It's worth noting that there are two different versions of the score of this game. Just the one move is different in the two versions. Original sources (Cheltenham Chronicle of 28.1.1928, BCM of February 1928, Illustrated London News of 19.5.1928, Borough of West Ham, East Ham
