Assorted Groups  (Anthology, Cultural, Ethnic, & Religious):
    African American Genealogy - online research is much more difficult due to the scant
         nature of record keeping for African American's prior to the Civil War.
    American Latvian Association - The American Latvian Association (ALA) is the main
         representative organization for the Latvian American community. We promote the
         study of Latvian language, history and culture. We ensure the availability of Latvian
         schools, books and teaching materials for our children. We assist newly arrived
         immigrants with information about the USA and we provide humanitarian aid to
         people in Latvia.
    Maryland Native Americans - Another link to GHLL Maryland Native American pages.
    Native American Tribes of Maryland - Most Native Americans were forced to leave
         Maryland during the 1700's, when eastern tribes were being displaced by colonial
         expansion. These tribes are not extinct, but except for the descendants of Maryland
         Native Americans who hid or assimilated into white society, they do not live in
         Maryland anylonger.
