My immediate problem is this: should I present this document to the Conference?

The reasons for not doing so are only too obvious. I cannot make any claim for the document's validity without naming my source, and by presenting said source's credentials for scrutiny. It would also be necessary to find contemporary evidence to corroborate any facts set forth in the document. Unfortunately, the only such evidence now in existence tends to gainsay everything that the document says: this extant evidence -- lists, inventories, etc. -- has already been examined thoroughly, and its interpretation is considered more or less settled.
