What do we know about existing black holes?

    [Moderator's note: Spun off from previous thread on different topic.]

    I'm still a bit new here and haven't studied much astronomy (being an electronics dude) so can anyone give me a good link(s) for what we know about existing black holes. That is size, location, and other physical characteristics of those we have discovered so far.

    Thanks DC

    This web page looks at stellar mass black holes and their accretion disks in binary systems-
