Hamilton Historical Resources

As a researcher, I've gotten a lot of requests for information sources on the internet. So to help, I've put together this page of links to Hamilton specific sources. I'll be adding to this as time goes on, but if you've got your own that I don't know about, give me a shout and I'll add it.
