about Rom-related websites (quoted from americangypsy.com):
"Since the Rom are a truly international people, the world wide web has proven an ideal tool for them to keep in contact with each other. There are hundreds of websites, chatrooms and e-mail lists operating in Romani and/or the language of their home country. Here are a few different sites (mainly in English) which provide an overview of Romani culture, history, politics, language, music and plain everyday life. Most of these sites have links to other sites if you want to take your research further."
