General Migration Helpful Links

Post by MAC »

I can sit here and just Google and Google and Google and eventually fill this list up, but some of my picks may not be relevant to what potential migrants really want and need. Basically, this is a beginning list for those who are too lazy to do their own internet searches or too feckless to know how to use internet search engines. (I will of course remove that comment in the final published version.)

I would like to thank all of you who have sent in long lists of minor and esoteric web sites. I appreciate the time and effort you have. If they're not here, put it down to the short American attention span that can only concentrate on a list for a short amount of time. At some point we have to kick the little birdlings out of the nest and let them fly (or learn how to use a search engine themselves.)

Each state is divided into employment, housing, newspapers for classifieds, education, etc. I also need good touristy sites, etc. We need to design the ultimate web resource for Northwest relocation here. This will be going on the northwestfront.org site. How about a bit of a helping hand here, especially from people who live in the Homeland already and want people coming into their areas?

This is last call for any new sites which, in your opinion, absolutely MUST MUST MUST be on this list. Let's make this a group project and get some participation here. - HAC

You got all the ones I've mentioned before. The only real estate site I've found since then that has interesting features is http://www.zillow.com/

Not sure how I could miss Zillow, they are good. I've added them, thanks for the suggestion.
