I am working on kanji reference book in which I'm including on and kun readings from online sources. And I am bummed by inconsistency of the number of kun or on readings a kanji can have according to different sources. For example, the kanji has:
-according to jisho.org, 6 kun readings: うけたまわ.る う.ける、 こ.らす、 ささ.げる、 すく.う、 たす.ける
(to be exact: jisho.org/kanji/details/%E6%89%BF%E3%81%91) This site is a spin off of the reputed csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/japanese.html. When checked the following kun readings seem to be not used at all, hence wrong: こ.らす、 ささ.げる、 すく.う、 たす.ける

-and, according to online saiga dictionary saiga-jp.com/kanji_dictionary.html, 1 kun reading: うけたまわ・る
( to be exact: saiga-jp.com/cgi-bin/dic.cgi ... 3741_60375)

Why is it so? Which source is more reliable? Do you people know any unquestionably reliable online source? Please help.

Thank you all in advance.

    jisho.org seems to include very very rare cases. I haven't heard 承 read as すくう、たすける、こらす、ささげる in my life。 If I check守る、it has かみ、and I think in rare cases 守るis read as かみ、when that is a part of a name of a god. (Shinto has 8 million gods.)

    saiga seems good.

    This one is one of the most popular dictionary in Japan, but it is Japanese-Japanese.
