Thats basically true at least in my experience, not with locating old picnic groves but old towns.Songdog said:If talking to anyone involved with any kind of historical society I would refrain from telling them that you are doing research to MD an area.
This tends to really turn off the history buffs as they think you are there to "rob" relics from the ground.
good deal,i found a late 1800's newspaper online for a town near me.I'm thinking he found a good one or two after this post, lol

they advertised having a fourth of july celebration at some guys property in the grove.
i have not yet found a map showing a parcel with the owners name.
yes we still text each other, he has very good info.Research definitely pays off.
As far as the OP, he now has a video series and a website that he markets and sells info on research and finding old picnic groves. He and his dad, (if I remember correctly) found a couple and pounded some old silver, in high volume, from these sites.
I've kind of always wanted to subscribe to this video training, but been reluctant. I also don't see him on the forums like he use to be.
