The pages in the second set can most easily be reached from the revised
site data top page and its references to subordinate indexes.
Added 12 bellfoundry indexes, linked
from the site data top page,
initially listing the same sites from a different perspective.
Linked all revised site data pages to the appropriate regional and general bellfoundry indexes.
(NOTE: The reason for the choice of geographic area is that all instruments within this section of the database are "complete", i.e., products of a single bellfoundry.)
