I'm not sure this project would have been possible without the help of the Internet. It certainly would have been a lot harder. The one thing I never figured out was where Jeff had received his initial list of cities - I never found a tool that would guarantee me the name of a city that had its own zip code.
|US Census Bureau, Gazetteer
||Allows a search by City/State or Zip. Returns 1990 population (based on US Census data) and a list of zip codes serving the city.
|USPS: Post Office Locator
||Good resource for finding actual post office addresses. The only downside is that you need an address in that post office's coverage area.
|Yahoo Yellow Pages
||Useful for finding appropriate addresses for the post office. I had the most luck looking for churches, restaurants, post offices, and elementary schools in that order.
|Postmark Newsletter Home Page
||This page is really devoted to pictorial cancellations, but there are tips there that would apply to any cancellation; we used some of them ourselves.
