Another tip given by jaq elsewhere on the forum:

http://www.gersociety.org.uk

the site for the Great Eastern Railway,  useful if any of your ancestors were 'on the railways'.  Loads of mine are.!!

A listing of old Occupations, many of which are archaic, These are useful to genealogists, and historians in general, since surnames often originated form someone's occupation.
