I am interested in celebrating the rich historical culture of Western New York. Because of the holiday, particularly ghost stories that happened in Buffalo, New York. I am Organizing an event for students about the "haunted" history of Buffalo New York.
So I started a google search of course, but I want to be legit and put some more effort rather than just copying and pasting from random websites.
I was going to ask in the regular History Stack Exchange if people can point me to legit material on the subject. Scholarly & Peer Reviewed articles. I backed down, thinking that it may look like I am just a lazy person, and do not want to do my research.
Is it okay for someone to ask in a question to be pointed to a specific type of resources? I didn't want to ask "Hey who knows about historical ghost stories in Buffalo New York?" I would have asked to be pointed towards articles or books so I can do my own research
