    Huntstand is a great app for finding who owns property and property lines, pretty simple to use.

    Penn Pilot Photo Centers is a great site for anyone in Pennsylvania. Old aerial photos from the 30s to the late 60s with pretty good detail. I've found many new places to detect using these photos.

    feel free to ad any new ones that you can think of.

    I love penn pilot. I also use historicaerials.com. You can pay for a membership but for what I want it’s not needed. You can split the map and have one side set to today’s date and the other side set to as far back as 1942 it has a nice slide feature that lets you move from one map to the other to look at the same spot in both eras. Also let’s you mark map for exact gps coordinates. I have found old homesteads in the woods and walked right to them.

    I like http://historicalmaps.arcgis.com/usgs/

    Topo maps going back to the 1890's for some areas. Maps from the early 20th C show locations of houses and some outbuildings.

    If you live by or have permissions near a navigable waterway, this may help you out:

    Roanoke requires a metal detecting permit, free but it expires annually. It's pretty explicit though = you can't search under a tree shade.

    You can contact Parks & Recreation via postal mail and they'll send you a free permit = at least they did 5 years ago.
