Deb’s Historical Research Page is loaded with links to an abundance of information, perfect for the historical fiction writer. I use Deb’s website a lot. Just the other day, while working on a new novel set in 1780, I needed to know how people fed babies that were not being nursed. Sure enough, Deb’s page led me right to the information.
