You could try this site and input the name of each city. It will give you things like the local time etc, but also the latitude and longitude, though I don't know how accurate it is.

 In finding distance using latitude and longitude, what determines whether the abbreviations S, N, E or W appear after the latitude or longitude? For example, my latitude for my town is 40 degrees 37 minutes 43.1400 seconds. How do I know if an east, west, north or south should appear after it?
