Here are some Useful links
Please note that I am no longer able to find time to administer big and complex links pages like this one and the language links page, so after December 2018, I will be discontinuing these pages. The site will continue in a simplified form that requires little maintenance and with only links connected with the local history of East Yorkshire. I am grateful to those who suggested links for this page. Anyone wanting to maintain a list may copy them and use them elsewhere if that is acceptable to the linked sites themselves. Link to new site
