"Bone tuning pegs" reminds me of "Dreadful Wind & Rain". Beautiful tune but gruesome lyrics.
maestronet.com and fiddleforum.com are two sites that come to mind, but neither is as good as the Cafe. Another source could be the Fiddle-L listserv, which has a lot of knowledgeable folks on the list.
Are you trying to value the fiddle, or do you just want more information about it? Either way, you need to take it to a fiddle/violin expert to have them examine it in person. It will be near impossible to get any valuable information from the Internet.
Keep in mind that there have been a lot more violins made by a lot more different makers, over a much longer period of time than mandolins. You may have something that nobody will be able to identify with any certainty. I have four old fiddles, three even have labels, and they have been examined by several experts. I know one is probably 19th century Italian, and the others are probably German/Austrian, one is probably 19th century and the other are two are probably early 20th century, and that's about all I've been able to find out.
