British History Online

British History Online contains "some of the core printed primary and secondary sources for the medieval and modern history of the British Isles." More than a few of these sources have direct genealogical value, like the assize and lay subsidy records. The background provided by titles in the Victoria County History series will prove invaluable to researchers whose ancestors come from obscure corners of England, whether their surnames are mentioned or not.
