Spent the weekend doing family genealogy

I spent this past weekend with my wife's grandmother scanning pictures and trying to find details on holes in the family history. On my side I've been able to trace things back to Wales in the late 1600s. On my wife's side its a bit harder since prior to 1861 Italy didn't exist as a country. England keeps very good census records. Italy barely has them and when they exist they are locked up in church archives.

I've made good progress using ancestry.com and familysearch.org.

Are there other good resources I should be using?
