What is the Best Way to Uncover Details About Our Ancestors?

Thanks to Kiki Corbin for sharing one of our first genealogy tidbits.

Kiki says:

“I have traced my Corbin family back to the 1400’s after many years of research. I was only able to trace my Angelakis family back 4 generations, which also took many years. Now I’d like to know more about these people, what they did, why the women in England died so young, what they believed in… all the important things about them. None of the sites I used have any connection to that kind of information. Any ideas on how to proceed would be appreciated.”

What resources have you found to uncover details about your ancestors? If you have any information to help Kiki in her search please post it in the comments.
