OVERVIEW OF BILL HILLMAN'S SITES ON THE WEB

Since 1995 I have worked to promote all aspects of Manitoba and Canadian Cultural Heritage
and have created countless Websites to document and promote these interests.
This was accomplished in addition to working as a full-time high school teacher,
university professor, restaurateur, musician and family man.
The results of these endeavours are best explored through an exploration of the Hillman-created Webpages at
www.hillmanweb.com
all funded and hosted by myself on the dedicated Hillman Webserver.

I have collated some of the links to many of these pursuits on the Webpage at:
www.hillmanweb.com/bill
The contents as shown below may be printed out
but it is recommended that the reader go to my Webpage so that each link may be clicked on.
