Do you belong to a Family History Society? I am a member of the Sussex Family History Group which is well worth every penny. As a member I have access to an online database of Sussex baptisms and burials which makes the membership fee worth it alone. You can email for a transcript of a will, join an active Facebook group or just read the quarterly publication that is available to all members.
For a full list of county Family History Societies visit the Family History Federation (previously FFHS) website.
If you are starting out on your own family history research, I cannot stress how important it is to join a FHS, like minded people are available to help you and advise you, they usually have in depth knowledge of not only the county or area involved, but also many of the families who lived there and may be able to point you in the right direction for your own research.
Lately I have been trawling second hand bookshops and websites looking for publications by local family history societies and have amassed a series of booklets published by the Warbleton and District History Group, a local village family history group.
Warbleton is the area where many of my ancestors came from. These booklets includes such subjects as; Leather and Cloth, Cornmills in and around Warbleton, Ironworking in Warbleton, Church and Dissent in Warbleton and Warbleton in Wartime. They have proved to be interesting and informative in building a picture of the place where my ancestors came from.
There are gems to be found to help your research if you have the time to look!
