Brief History


This website was produced through research as well as personal knowledge. I was born in Jamaica so I have some knowledge about the cultural aspects. However, my knowledge of historical facts were unclear. Here are some of the resources I called upon when compiling my information for this site.

Visit Amazon.com if you are interested in purchasing your own copy of Cities of the World.
