Actually, this whole affair raises a fascinating epistemological question for me as an historian, who is terribly reliant on written sources like pay records (or remittance and passport records, in my case): sources have to be evaluated in light of other sources, and contextual realities.

Your comment crystalized it for me, though (see the blog for more). Thanks.
