This collection of links is not meant to be comprehensive or anything other than interesting to me. I have used these and others to research information about ships found on stamps as well as general philatelic purposes. There are many other possible sites so if you find a site that you think would be a general benefit, let me know and I will consider adding it. To be considered for inclusion, a site must be somewhat general,not associated with one ship (some exceptions). Collections of links to museums, nautical or stamp topics are best. Also let me know if any of these links have stopped working.
