Don’t forget as fuel prices rise and we turn to our computers more and more, to document.  Sometimes there is no substitute for a research trip.  Sometimes volunteers, such as the network at http://www.usgenweb.org can help.

Though you are probably already using US Gen Web Project (see previous tip), have you added your query/queries to the email lists that correspond geographically to your problem area(s)?  To get started, go to the county in question.  We suggest you then subscribe to their email list (see below for definition).  If you prefer not to, email the county coordinator with your query and request it be added to the email list.
