Well it'd must be discussed when you can reach the point, but basically is a mixture of the QS/Annals/MT texts showing the typical "Some said that.... but others said that"

You asked me time ago in this thread: Quotation from Post47

"Findegil wrote.
What I miss is a tale of the years of the first age. I know that we have that only for the last couple of years but I still think in your kind of project it should be included.

Its included as the last Appendix of Volume one. E Yenonotie. The Tale of Years.

About the other matter, really its a case of repeatition, but I shortened anyway lots of it, (its a real pity that you cannot read it for being in spanish, to compare).

Anyway I feel fine with it, because its the most approached to the knowed final structure projects of the professor, if Tolkien wanted to repeat the story, amen ( evidently with other words). But we only have what we have."

I don't remember well now how I managed the texts, but this text together with that Of Durin's Folk in the Third Age were composed basically with Of Dwarves and Men and the Appendix of TLotR dividing the information of both ages. Of course I considered some other sources but unfortunately I had not the editing structure of yours, quoting the sources, and I would have to study deeply it. ..... When you reach the point.

I named Prologue to the text from the beginning of TCoH till is said Turin had 5 years. I though it was a "common history" to both "House of Hador Texts"

As for the chapter structure of Tuor, yes, they were more or less invented, but was discussed in this thread near the beginning. Quotation from Post 8

Yes I invented them. After the publication of The Children of Hurin I wanted that his cousin had a similar story, and that invention (I think) is not against the story and donít changes anything wrote by Tolkien. Itís only a heading.
