Notes about companies

I have added a new Notes feature to the "Select company" page of the database search. These notes will show you all sorts of extra information about companies including organization dates, wrap-up dates, company nicknames, presidents. I am also starting to compile short company biographies. At this point, only a tiny handful of companies are represented.
