Is there any good Shatnez website out there? I could not find one. I want a website where I can find Shatnez testing centers and see information about products with known shatnez. If there is no such website, I may create one, if I can get major Shatnez centers on board.
If you’re in Manhattan, I’d suggest the classic Williamsburg shatnez lab; it’s probably very easy to get to by subway from where you are
There is a worlwide list in PDF dated May 10, which could have changed, entitled Directory of Shatnez Laboratories Worldwide..
Mod please let this link:

Mr. Joseph Rosenberger brought shatnes awareness to American Jewry. Prior to his heroic efforts, American Jewry was largely ignorant of the prohibition.
When you hear all the nostalgia expressed by some for the time when American Jews didn’t have mechitzas at chasunas (and other various issues where Yiddishkeit was practiced with defects), remember the prewar American Orthodox Hamon Hoam were largely ignorant even as late as the 1950s and 1960s of large elements of proper Judaism. It was only after the postwar European Jewish influx into America when things started really to change. (There was some European rabbonim who arrived in the interwar period that also started getting things fixed in America.)
