It seems to be a sort of server-base application like Antagonist mentioned in the discussion about collating the vast volume of data that we have.
I think he proposed a sort of "fuzzy" database, called something like ICI or I2I or something like that. IFRC, it drew some adverse comments. But maybe such a tool would be the right thing to do.
I say this after trying to review carefully through several of the complex threads.
It takes ages to do it, checking each source link, and in any case it is just too much to keep in your head. Well for me anyway, and I always had a reputation for being good at that sort of thing.
I tried to keep notes, and even to put stuff into spreadsheet to make timelines. Waste of time-lines, more like.
A major problem is all the foreign names, not to mention the a.k.a. lists, that the authorities seem to fling randomly around.
