Here are some links you may find helpful!
It's just the beginning. More will be added and all will be changed to hot links
as I have time to search the web.
If you have or find websites you think others would find useful please e-mail them to me and
I'll add them to the list.
This is not a comprehensive list. It's meant as a place for you to start. Some of these pages
give just a bit of information that with further research may lead you to wonderful ideas.
Don't forget school and public libraries, neighbors and family members
who may be from or have knowledge of some of these nations. It never hurts to ask!
