Google Books http://books.google.com has tons of content that other sites don't
even have, and that will increase (who else has geographical mentions obtained
by scanning the books test?) Since Google provides an API to allow Google

I don't have time to work on this unfort., but it would be fun to add. I bet
some savvy person out there could toss it in. It is a free API, and Google seems
to want people to use it.
