Here you will find some of my favourite links. This is likely to grow as I find more sites that I like, so I will keep it free of graphics for speed.

Personal history sites of interest
This site is brilliant! I spent ages looking around this site, a village in Worcestershire called Badsey, only hope that wiganworld can get this good.
Another site I enjoyed, and a lot of work has gone into it, is Skelmersdale Local History Archives, with some input from Wiganers.

Maps
For a modern map of Wigan, visit multimap. Don't miss the 'Aerial Photos' button, Wigan is now photographed - then click 'Overlay Map' for street names.
If you wish to buy maps, alangodfreymaps have reproduced early 1900s maps from the ordnance survey. They are cheap - if you live in Wigan, pop into the History Shop where they can also be bought.

ebay
One of my favourites is ebay, I have sold loads of stuff on here!
I have sent items to America, France, Australia, Japan etc... For overseas auctions I use xe.com to convert currencies.

Searching for friends
Very popular site, have a look at friends reunited, it is free to list, browse etc. If you do want to contact anyone, you will need to join at a cost of 5 per year.

Fun
TV Cream is a big site sure to bring back some memories!
Quite addictive , MasterWord is a game where you have to guess a 4 letter word. Free to register. Another addictive word game (thanks Jose) is Toss Words, new grid every day.
