Okay. Thats what I have! What sites do you use?
And you've done such a good job here, I think I'll replace my old bookmark of it with this thread.
For reference, look under "R", just click it. For any specific subject, look for the category in the index, click and go. There is not much you'd be looking for you can't find here.
Oh man... I am in so much trouble! My husband walked by when I was checking it out. Now I'll be lucky if I ever get my computer back again. LOL. Good site (If I ever get him away from it so that I can look at it!)
Since this thread is about "research" dosen't it seem possible to you that someone may wish to search public records for divorce filings? It may seem like a irrelevant question to you if you can't envision a reason why to ask, but then I suppose a plethora of other valid questions would seem as irrelevant to someone that would as why?
I cruised thru the thread and see most of my favorites are already posted.
There is always http://www.alamo-girl.com/ of course.
The Federal Web Locator intended to be the one stop shopping point for federal government information on the web..."

ActivistCash.com, unveiled yesterday, is run by the Guest Choice Network, an organization of 30,000 restaurant and tavern operators. The Guest Choice Network has become a front line defense against today's nanny culture. Or, as its first Web site--nannyculture.com--puts it: "Unofficially we include anybody who stands up against the growing fraternity of food cops, health care enforcers, vegetarian activists and meddling bureaucrats who 'know what's best for you.' " The site offers, among other things, information on junk science and food scares.
The Wayback Machine makes it possible to surf pages stored in the Internet Archive's web archive.
