When I have added information or something interesting about a post office, I’ll post it here. Occasionally I find a tidbit about a website that tickles me and this is a perfect place to share it.
Check out the list of post offices from around the world I’ve cobbled together -> List of Post Offices. It isn’t complete but looking good so far. Don’t forget to bookmark the link. I’ve included it in the menu above – just under stamps.
The spreadsheet contains 192 countries, but not all have clickable links. A surprising number of countries don’t have a functional post office site or it’s woefully out of date. Monaco could easily win an award for best 1990s site design.
|Country||Post Office||Website||Comments on site||Online store||Online Catalogue||Newsletter||Notes||Cancels/Postmarks|
|Alphabetical listing by English name||Country specific language when possible. If you find errors, please contact me for a correction||Link to primary website||Misc. comments about the site, what is available and relevant details||Link to any online store to purchase stamps & philately supplies||If a catalogue is available through the post office a link will be supplied. Most catalogues start around 2000.||Link to online or e-mail newsletters||Supplementary notes about newsletters, catalogues||Link to special cancels and postmarks. Not many available.|
This is a time-consuming job, so changes will be made gradually. All links have been checked, but I’m going through it a second time searching for better links. All updated post office information will be highlighted in yellow.
Eventual additions to the list of post offices or new spreadsheets
- Add links to more free on-line catalogues
- Links to sites that explain cancels and have extensive lists of early cancel types
- Database of stamp designers (world-wide). So far it only includes my favourites. I’ll be 100 before I scratch the surface
- Links to First Day Covers/Post Cards via post offices
- Refine the post office newsletter options. I’d like a searchable list of online newsletters
- List of post offices will be broken down into several sheets instead of one lengthy list
- spreadsheet of stamp specialist auction houses with auction dates
- make the final list of post offices downloadable in pdf format.
This list will change as my time commitments shift. In the meantime, enjoy the fledgling “Big List of Post Offices”. I’m enjoying putting it together. You can find the spreadsheet here:
