The only Gliese objects where we were not successful are two Gliese sources that are actually QSOs; two proposed companions to brighter stars, which we believe do not exist; four stars included in one of the catalogs but identified there as only optical companions; one probable plate flaw; and two stars that simply remain unrecovered. For the 4251 recovered stars, 2693 have coordinates based on Hipparcos positions, 1549 have coordinates based on 2MASS data, and 9 have positions from other astrometric sources. All positions have been calculated at epoch 2000 using proper motions from the literature, which are also given here. File Summary:

Note (1): Names use the prefix: * Gl = from the Gliese (1969VeARI..22....1G) catalog * GJ = not in Gl69 (1969VeARI..22....1G) but present in GJ79 (1979A&AS...38..423G) or GJ91 (Cat. V/70) * Wo = not in any of Gl69 (1969VeARI..22....1G), GJ79 (1979A&AS...38..423G) or GJ91 GJ91 (Cat. V/70), but in Woolley et al. (1970ROAn....5....1W, Cat. V/32), GJ in Simbad Note (2): Where a given star has two nearby star catalog names, the second name appears here. If there is no nearby star catalog name and a Hipparcos name is available, it is provided here Note (3): Flags as follows: b = For stars with both Gliese and Woolley names, we give the Wo name here (and the Gl name in first column) c = Star is not in the GJ91 catalog d = Not listed as a member of a binary system in Gl69, GJ or Wo catalogs; binary companion identified subsequent to GJ91 e = The secondary star is separated from the primary by less than 5" and HIP/2MASS positions are not available for both stars, so we list them as one line in this table f = GJ binary where 2MASS photometry is probably blended, most separations <5" g = Pleiades member (distance∼133pc) h = See appendix for additional comments
