This sounds like an expensive hobby that may produce a lot of satisfaction for yourself, but not necessary an income producing venture. To each his own, and I wish you much success and happiness in this venture.
Why don’t you try the Public Library, an old book store, or the local historian. Don’t under-estimate the homes for senior citizens, there is a wealth of untapped memories and resources waiting to go into the graves. People from all walks of life go into those homes. You never know if there is a Victorian expert or history professor waiting to take their expertise into the next world, tap these treasures before they are lost forever. Old folks love to talk when they get a visitor. Start your research. Make sure you are doing this with joy in your heart and excitement in your venture. God bless!
