Paul Duffey has made available to us a collection of aids to researching overseas. A link to each one is given below.

He makes this disclaimer:

The only original material of the following items is Finding Hometown of Overseas Ancestors and I had help from Barbara Salyer for that. The pages on Research in South America are courtesy of Paul Hodges. The British Isles Group of Tucson contributed the British Isles information. The rest were mostly abstracted from research guides by the LDS church. To the best of my knowledge, none of it is copyrighted.
