Site of the Month Wisconsin's Great Lakes Shipwrecks
wisconsinshipwrecks.org

GLIN's December Site of the Month is the new Wisconsin's Great Lakes Shipwrecks, created by the Wisconsin Historical Society and the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute. The site offers details on 760 Lake Superior and Lake Michigan shipwrecks. Information on the ships' construction, service history, final voyage and location are searchable, as are any relevant videos and photos.

Other shipwrecks that may be in the area are also spelled out. Nearby attractions such as historic waterfronts, lighthouses, museums, historic vessels, charter services, theaters, waterfront parks or archeological sites are also linked with each ship's story. These attractions are searchable by location and category as well.

The "learn" section of the site provides visitors with information about underwater archeology, the value of studying shipwrecks and how the studies are undertaken, field reports, a calendar of shipwreck-related events, a glossary of ship terms and a list of archival newspaper stories about the waters and their wrecks.

Overview
GLIN links hundreds of agencies and organizations serving the Great Lakes region. You may not have visited them all yet, especially with new data and information and more partners coming online every month. Because partnership is the core of GLIN, each month we highlight the wealth of information available on the web site of one active GLIN partner. These partners work closely with the GLIN Project Team to ensure that their information is integrated into the regional network; in turn, these partners point back to relevant GLIN pages from wherever appropriate on their own web sites so that people can easily find information about a topic of interest.
