Many books are now becoming available as part of the Google Books Project and the Internet Archive.  Finding these might be a challenge to the new researcher so the links given below are to some of the sources that are most likely to be of interest.  Although many of these books are over 100 years old, they often contain useful and local nonconformist material and are still the “standard” works for some topics.  If you make any discoveries of your own along these lines please let me know.
