Circle❜s of the USA ‧ to communicate with family-genealogists

For Non-Americans f.i. Europeans it very difficult to understand all the abbreviations of USA States a/o COUNTY's, so that's why I intended to look in my ATLAS -from last year, I am not yet that old to catch one of some decennia before- and wrote down all the most important ones. Hope others can help to assure I don NOT make mistake with the right cities, for I did not have geography in school about the new world. -at that time it was considered the old one, for everyone thought the IRON CURTAINS would NEVER FALLs.
