Books We Own
Sometimes it is best to set aside your research problem and put your thoughts elsewhere for a while. Whenever I've done this I can always come back to the problem with a fresh set of eyes. Try volunteering to help others for a while instead. The Books We Own site is a great way to begin!

Cyndi's List - Professional Researchers, Volunteers & Other Research Services
If all else fails you might consider hiring a professional researcher to do some of the work for you. I can't personally endorse any of the researchers on this page, so you must use your best judgement in obtaining their services. You might also try to "swap" volunteer services with others who need help in your areas of expertise or resources.
Cyndi's List - Queries & Message Boards
Search through thousands of online queries by other researchers. Make up your own basic/generic query for each person you are working on and post it in as many spots as you can as you sift through other's queries. Stop by each of the USGenWeb pages for the counties you are researching in and look through their queries also.
