How many shipwrecks are there in the Great Lakes area?

Does anyone know how many wrecks are in the Great Lakes, how many have been found? How far back can we go to find out, how long have records been kept?
Is there a museum for the Edmond Fitzgerald? How is the best way to find out about shipwrecks without knowing what they were called?

I have a book on lake huron only it list 300 plus but also says that record keeping back then was sad to say but there is between 3000 and 5000 we don't know about now this is all wrecks not just old big ships so a good guess is all I can do sorry.....
