Straybob


Straybob is a lad from Manchester who is walking coast to coast across India. Watch his videos in order, they're fascinating. All self edited, self filmed and great choice of music.

Billion Graves


Billion Graves According to the site, "BillionGraves is the world's largest resource for searchable GPS cemetery data, and is growing bigger and better every day." - I searched my family name and was surprised by the results.

Familysearch


Family Search is invaluable if you're doing your family tree. It's free and it contains useful census information.

The National Archives


The National Archives at Kew currently offer free downloads of documents etc. during Covid-19. It's free to register and you can download several documents per month.

Mugshots


Mugshots is an American site with photos and details of criminals in the good old U S of A, interesting to browse, look at pics and try to guess their crimes! On a serious note, we need a UK version of this site.

Old Bailey

A fully searchable edition of the largest body of texts detailing the lives of non-elite people ever published, containing 197,745 criminal trials held at London's central criminal court.
