  1. I have a bit of money to spare at the moment and was just wondering other than independent sellers what are some good/trusted websites where I can buy fossils from?
  2. Fossils of Parks Township

    https://fossil.15656.com/ Here is my personal website that targets fossils I have found locally. I try to post articles about particular finds, especially when it highlights a new genus or species for me, or a better specimen than I had before. I am highly interested in providing content for people searching online to find, especially about local specimens. I do my best to photograph each specimen to maximize detail and to satisfy curiosity. In keeping finds organized, I keep a catalog page and created a local numbering system: https://fossil.15656.com/about/fossil-catalog/ As I read research papers, I tend to post links to them and add commentary. https://fossil.15656.com/about/research/ I've done my best to provide a description of the local geology here: https://fossil.15656.com/local-geology/ And as I find interesting things along the way, sometimes I will create a live research article as I learn about it. Example: https://fossil.15656.com/research-pages/fedexia-striegeli/ I've only been collecting fossils for a year at this point. I'm still overwhelmed with how much there is to learn about fossil taxonomy and geology in general. This is a relaxing hobby for me that keeps me excited with the thrill of discovery. Thank you! Clint
  3. So I seem to have developed an interest in Stromatolites recently. Can someone suggest good / reliable books, websites or pdf papers where I can do further research Thanks
  4. Pixpaleosky web site

    Hi all, i would like to share my website with you ! It tells mainly about my 2 favorites collections: fish fossils from the world and fossils from South East of France. A bit later I will add dinosaur fossils pictures from my collection. This is in french for now but maybe you can translate or tell me if their a solution because google translate for website seems down. Enjoy http://webfossiles.free.fr
  5. Hey have others been having trouble with the British Museum's online Echinoid Directory? It has been off and on for the last week or two and currently I can not get the Keys, Index to Taxa or Glossry to open. Hoping some of our friends across the water might have a little insight. https://www.nhm.ac.uk/our-science/data/echinoid-directory/
  6. Simple online cladogram maker?

    Hey Do any of you know of websites/apps in which one can build a simple cladogram from scratch? Thanks in advance. -Christian
  7. What is the best place to buy fossils that is cheap, but still quality? I have little money and cant buy expensive things as my mom doesn't understand the passion I have for fossils (I'm 13). It's not easy growing your collection when the only place near you only has really worn up sharks teeth and you only go thrice a year. Thanks
  8. Uwgb website gone?

    There was a professor Dutch who had a great webpage on the uwgb site, but it appears to be gone. Every time I try to access it, I get an error. I've tried different links to different sections and all give errors. Does anyone know if it's gone for good? I'm guessing he's retiring or retired and they cleaned up his webspace? It stinks because there was so much good information on there.
  9. Hi all, I have been having trouble finding a good guide to use in order to ID fossil seashells (mainly gastropods and bivalves) of the Neogene-Quaternary of Western Europe (mainly Belgium/Netherlands). So, I'm turning to you guys: does anyone of you have a nice up-to-date website/online paper that I could use in order to help me ID all of my different seashells? Preferable with clear photos/drawings of the different species. Thanks in advance! Max
  10. As I'm sure you all know, from my experiences interacting with the people on this forum, they tend to be very nice and reputable people, including when conducting trades and sales. I'm wondering and techniques/procedures forum members use when they are making a trade with someone that is not a part of the forum. How do you make sure someone isn't ripping you off? Are there other reliable websites where people trade fossils in relative safety of having their fossils taken? Any recommendations? Any insight at all here would help. I am pretty new to fossil trades. Thanks for taking the time to look at this! Best, Matt
  11. The apparent demise of the best California, Utah and Nevada area paleontology website is premature. Inyo.coffeecup.com (created by a former TFF member) is up and running. Check out his great write ups with pictures about trips to many sites many now under protection by state and Federal governments. http://inyo.coffeecup.com/site/cf/carfieldtrip.html#fossilspages Download his fieldtrip guide: http://inyo.coffeecup.com/site/fieldtripbook.pdf Here are two of my favorites sites: Red Rock Canyon State Park in the California Mohave desert http://inyo.coffeecup.com/site/redrock/redrockfossils.html and see the magnificent silicified insects from the Miocene lake deposits near Barstow, CA http://inyo.coffeecup.com/site/barstowfossils/barstowfossils.html Thanks to TFF member @John for alerting us that his wonderful website was down. In a related matter, I would hate to see Inyo.coffeecup.com dissapear if the creator is incapacitated or runs out of money to support the site. Besides The Internet Archive AKA The Wayback Machine, I wonder if any institutions would be willing to archive a version for posterity. Books are archived in libraries; where should websites be saved? I wonder if The Fossil Forum would be willing to archeive copies of significant paleontology websites. Have we made plans to carry on and archive The Fossil Forum in case disaster strikes? Maybe geology libraries and paleontology departments at colleges/universities should store and archeive quality paleontological websites. Sometimes quality websites such as Mindat.org (minerals and occasion fossils) find institutions to preserve and support their continued operations. Mindat has Hudson Institute of Mineralogy, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Has The Fossil Forum ever considered forming a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization to support our activities or finding an institution to partner with? As an added bonus donations to TFF would be tax deductable. Cheers, John
  12. French trilobite forum

    Hello, I present to you the most important French forum on trilobites: classification, identification help, discussion and mutual assistance. More than 700 species of members' personal collections are listed by order and family. good visit ! Alex http://trilobites.naturalforum.net/
  13. Texas Fossils

    Some time last year I proposed a new website to Kris @Ptychodus04 in exchange for some ammonites which later evolved (no pun) into him doing some additional preparation work as well. My profession is a software engineer (programmer) and I specialize in web development. Here's the new site running from my Linux CentOS server that I built a few years ago: Texas Fossils His old site was overdue for an upgrade. I'm adding a gallery to this website tomorrow so he will be able to upload new pictures and I'll be making additional updates throughout the week based off of his feedback. Hopefully I'll get to make @RJB a website to showcase all of his crabs as those are certainly worth showing off.
  14. Has anyone been to any of the places on this website? http://dnr.mo.gov/pubs/pub665.pdf Or do you know how to get to any specific places that this website? It takes me awhile to get to the other side of the river so I don't have much time to scour every road cut.
  15. Hi everyone, I've now changed servers for the Stamford and District Geological Society. Gearing up for a cracking new year. With full calendar of events for 2017 coming very soon. http://www.stamfordgeolsoc.org
  16. Website to Share and Find Fossil Sites

    This is an new website I just launched as a platform for people to share and find fossil sites near them. No account required. http://www.californiafossils.wordpress.com **Any suggestions or comments are welcome
  17. Hello all, as few of you know, my background is in programming, and I wish to use those skills to benefit paleontology and TFF as best I can. Paleontology as a scientific field was begun by amateur collectors, who were merely interested in the world and curious about its past. Those days still continue, but I believe that in this age of information and knowledge, it is important to unleash our potential, and have a place for all amateurs to publish their findings, scientific thoughts and hypotheses, and share with the world the knowledge they have gained, so that everyone can have a part of it. My idea is to create a website and database where amateurs can write formal papers or simply document their discoveries on things they have found. The site would be accessible for free, and by anybody. Of course, there would be a few guidelines, such as: the paper must be in the correct format, the work should not be obvious, and any hypotheses/conclusions should be based upon observable evidence. Papers documenting your finds, or a description of a new collecting site, or things you hypothesize about creature A based off of feature X seen on specimen D collected at site C, etc. This information is widely available here on The Fossil Forum, that is why I and many others love this place so much, but the site I am speaking of will be for everyone to contribute to, for free. It would basically be a large knowledge database, which I believe has potential for the scientific community. As this site would not require papers to be peer-reviewed, information published there would not necessarily be accurate or purely scientific, however that is a risk taken with all sites like this (Wikipedia for example), but these sites can still be very valuable to the scientific community. It is citizen science. My first question is this: Who anyone be interested? Second: Because I am making this free, and because databases and websites both cost money, I would love to have some donations to pay for the setup/continued upkeep of the site. I am thinking that initial setup would cost somewhere between $50 and $100, and upkeep cost would depend on site traffic, so I cannot guess that cost right now. Also of course, TFF would be sponsored on the site if it wishes. Edit: Added a poll
  18. Fellow fossil freaks, For over a decade, we (a small team of 4 volunteers) have been developing a Dutch-Belgian paleo-portal at fossiel.net. Some may already know us a bit. We are a completely independent and non-commercial effort, aiming at providing a knowledge base and communication platform, to the benefit of both amateur and professionals. Moreover, we specifically try to bridge the gap between amateurs and professionals. Originally only available in Dutch, we finally did the massive effort to translate the whole website to English , and we're nearly there! Last year, we also completely revamped the core system of our website, which is now completely database-driven. I believe we have a lot to offer you (and vice versa), so in the coming weeks, I will present specific parts of our knowledge base in this topic, including a fossil ID system, geo-localities (including fossil sites, musea, etc..., even associations), a glossary, articles, literature references, and so on... Stay tuned for the details, but in the mean time, you're very welcome to have a look around @ http://english.fossiel.net/ Tell us what you think! PS: we're no native speakers, so we would be very grateful for anybody pointing out language mistakes and typos.
  19. My Mineral And Fossil Finds In N America

    I travel all around the US and Canada for my job, but I finds minerals and fossils for my sanity. Most of the sites are public and I've described precisely where they are so that others can search there, too. Www.treasurehuntingtrucker.WordPress.com Treasure Hunting Trucker is also on Facebook, so feel free to like me. Thanks, Ken Moore
  20. I operate YWCA Camp Cavell located on Lake Huron in Michigan and try to pass along information to all who will listen about the Great Lakes. We do programs for adult and children's groups, as well as people who attend our Kid's, Family, Women's, & Seniors programs. My after season hobby is photographing the lake shore in the winter, and fossils for presentations. We have just started a facebook group called YWCA Camp Cavell - Lake Huron Beach Combers if any would like to join. Welcome all that would like to come share information or talk about the Great Lakes!
