You can use any icons you like with Second Site. I have provided a few here to get you started, as well as links to sites with more icons.
You can right-click on the icons on this page to save them ("Save Picture As..." in Internet Explorer, "Save Image" in Netscape). You can also copy the files using the Windows Explorer: the icons are installed with the program and reside in the Help\Icons subfolder.

3rd Party Icon Libraries
You'll find many icon files and other graphics via the following links.
One idea for an icon to represent the country of origin is to use an image of the country's flag . A great source for contemporary flag images is ISO3166-1 (and IANA) codes and flags of countries and territories. It's an exhaustive list, but it does not contain historical flags. You will have to rename the files to work with the name of your custom flag and the values in that field.
Another source for flags is the Flags of the World website. The flags are too large for use as icons, but you will find historical flags there.

- Little people icons were based on very similar icons by David Renelt that I found on IconArchive.com. His icons are Be-A-Friend-Ware: call a good friend and tell him how much you like him. See his ReadMe.txt file.
