What do you do when you're stuck on all ends of your tree?

I'm fairly new to this and so far Family Search has provided pretty much everything. Where do you go to find more? I'd like a little more info than census records.   

I've found some info just randomly typing into Google. I can't find nearly as much as I'd like on my dad's side of the family. And my maternal grandmother's maternal branch is impossible.

Kayla, you could open your Security settings just a little, would help others to make connections. It was suggested to me & helped me make lots of connections in wikitree. JPVIV

Post Script: Nothing is impossible at wikitree
Thanks guys! I opened up security where possible. The list of free websites will be very helpful! I adopted Bridget and Michael. Any advice on finding info from Ireland?

You can give a man a fish & feed him for one day, or you can teach him to fish & feed himself for a lifetime.

Please someone teach me to fish for Ancestors in England :)
