Untraceable localities:
I have indicated below all the localities that I could not locate on any map, atlas, gazetter, or web site. The main ones I have consulted include The Times Atlas of the World, Andrees Handatlas (8th edition, 1930), US Gazetteers, and the Getty Geographic Thesaurus, plus additional more regional sources. If you can provide coordinates for any of these localities, please do let me know. Thank you. This listing is a working document, so it is not polished but simply raw information.
