I know that compact manifolds have finitely generated homology groups. I read somewhere that the same is not true for arbitrary manifolds.

What would be an example of a manifold with homology groups that are not finitely generated?

Take a plane, remove an infinite number of points, the first homology group of this manifold is infinite
