The most comprehensive web resource I know of is Lucky Mojo, on Hoodoo (African-American/Southern US folk magic).  It's very good and useful.

Apotropaios has some interesting material on British folk magic.

Your best resources will be books -- Owen Davies is the acknowledged top scholar in the field.  I also love W. F. Ryan's The Bathhouse at Midnight, on Russian folk magic.
