NOTE: This book has NO page numbers and NO index. The above Willmert's were ones I noticed while browsing the book a long time ago, and I bookmarked the pages. I do not yet know if there are more Willmert's in the book. I am working on making a listing of everyone in the book, but this is a huge project, and will take me a long, long time to complete. I will try to get the listing put on the internet somewhere when I am done with it.
