~Agatha Christie

Try contacting local family history societies to the areas you are researching you might be surprised on the treasures some societies hold. They may also be able to guide you in the right direction for your research and give you have a better picture of the area of research.

Pay a visit to the local Church if your able to because again you might just get some tips and records there for the local area.
