I don't know if this even applies to paganism, but I'm writing a religion paper about the spiritualism movement in the 19 century, beliefs and practices, views on death, spiritualism versus science....and the internet isn't really helpful.....surprisingly. Anyone wanna help?
You may say that I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. Someday I hope you'll join us, and the world will live as one.

Have you checked into the American Spiritualist Church? This would be a good start: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiritualist_Church

I'd also check out sacred-texts.com.  I'm sure some of the texts regarding Spiritualism are out there.

Also when searching pick out particular names or terms and do separate searches on those. For example a specific seach on Kate and Margeret Fox brings up more detailed information on them. Look up Andrew Jackson Davis as a separate search, The Society for the Diffusion of Spiritual Knowledge, follow any lead like a detective.
