More Extensive Research

One thing I discovered is all the places on the world wide web that you can find free maps and free map sites. I have gone as far as overlaying antique and old maps over new maps to make things easier to locate. There are old maps that go back to before the 1500’s that show a lot of really old areas and what was there including ghost towns that the buildings have been gone for centuries. This is usually a good winter project, but be sure and back up your maps and downloads as I have lost about a thousand maps as a result of a computer crash. If you are into the outlaw era you can look at historical societies and antique news paper sites. Most of the time you can type outlaw or some gang member name and it will pull up robberies, or just type robberies in the onsite search. It will pull up a lot of results and another option is if you know the outlaws real name it will pull up land records on the BLM site or their family members name.
