I came across this site while trying to find information on the Volga Bulgars. I am very impressed with the selections, and think that this is a wonderful tool for basic research on many tukological matters. I am especially happy with your inclusion of a portion of the Dzhagfar Tarikhi, a document I have had looked for unsuccessfully for a long time. Which leads me to ask a few questions, since I could not find another way of posing them:
1. Are you planning to include further materials from the three volumes of the Orenburg Dzhagfar Tarikhi?
2. Can you help me determine what part of the list of Bulgarian rulers from "all" dynasties, which seems to be a collection of notes taken by Nurutdinov from various sources (including modern treatments), is actually based on the old Bulgar sources he cites, i.e., Kul Gali and Gazi Baba? The excerpt from Gazi Baba's text supports much but not all of the information given in the preceding selections. I am especially interested in the genealogical information and actual names given in the original texts for the rulers of the "Hungarian Bulgars" and the "Danubian Bulgars." Whether you can answer this by yourself or refer me to another expert or publications of Kul Gali and Gazi Baba (which I have not been able to locate), your help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance, and for setting up this site.
