  • Delightful to hear about enhancing your inimitable site. So few in genealogical mode are interested in fact-based history--but for those of us who are, your site is a jewel. ~Genealogy buff

  • That's a cool resource you've built/ are building. ~Re-enactor, VA

  • Thank you for undertaking this project!! ~JJ

  • This is awesome! I have microsoft Works which includes Streets and Trips '06, but I never installed it. This motivated me to install it. After I did so, Clicking MS S&T on the Global Gazetter worked like a charm. I wish I had this on my recent trip through South Carolina! This is so much easier than thumbing through guidebooks to locate sites. ~Florida.

  • Great work, John! I look forward to really poring over this. Thanks for your efforts in this endeavor. I'm looking into how to use the TZ site so I can help add some sites. ~Author of Rev War book.

  • (ref Caribbean portion) You ought to have an entry for the Saint-Domingue participation in the Savannah expedition of 1779.
