Aha! Now I see "religion in america" is a "special topic" under "reference sources." So not sure if the page I added is appropriate or not. Let me know what you think. Also, a suggestion: if you highlight any web link and hit the "make web link" button in the HTML wizard commands, you get a window with a box that, when checked, makes the link open in a separate window. I find this easier when browsing web pages, so I set up the links on my American Religious History page that way. A hassle to fix them all though....
