Default Research Links - by topic

Sometimes I see the same links posted in different threads on this site and others. There's a lot of information to be found on the net and even on this forum. So in light of that I'm creating this sticky thread for one place to look at these research tools. PM me if you want a link added here.

A sticky thread is an option that the admins and mods have to stick a thread at the top of the list so it doesn't get buried, and never found again.

Also of note there are frequently a lot of local sites online where you can get history of places close to where you live.
Yep... Most of my bookmarks were for Connecticut. Should I add them here as well?

TNhunter, just post them here and we'll add them to the list.

Was curious if anyone has used this site http://www.splc.org/foiletter.asp seems to be a guide to help people with questions. Never done this myself but thought it was a interesting website.

Wow...great list of sites for doing some research!!!
Checked some out and ended up registering at the Ghost Towns forum. Really enjoy the old areas that have passed on onto history...lots of stories come out of them. Thanks again!!

I was wondering if a link to this sticky could be added here on this page? I always look here first for it because it falls under research. This is the page I am refering to... http://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=2091.
