The Jaguar Database

It is doubtful that any database of historical facts can ever be complete or 100% accurate, and if anyone has corrections or additional information we would love to include it. Photos that we can use would also be most welcome. All material will be gladly accredited to its supplier. Please send your updates or suggestions  to us by email.   We are adding material as time permits, but this index page shows our current idea of the scope of this material. Check back periodically to see which links have been activated.
