Default Hello from Rochester,NY area

Hello and thanks for having me. I live about 30 miles east of Rochester,NY. Just a couple miles from Canandaigua .
Am very new to MD. Have been digging my yard and a local park.
Lots of scrap metal, toy cars, etc.
I did find two ladies compacts dating to the 1920ís and a 1902 Barber dime in my back yard, but nothing else to speak of.
I have a Fisher F44 and a Garrett pointer.
If anyone knows a spot to dig and is willing to take me let me know. Iím not into hijacking a spot or anything like that. Just looking to learn and explore someplace new. The ground here is very metallic and rocky.

Thanks all !
Doug

welcome from Allegany county. we have TONS of cool old history around us. Start with historicmapworks.com and look up some old census maps. Research is key. Go door knocking in Canandaigua, or your immediate area. lots of super old houses in the area.
