Here are some places for new people and perhaps some which more experienced researchers may not have found.
The IGI (there is a useful thread about the use of this which gets nudged up from time to time).
A site explaining how to get the best out of the IGI
Free Births, Marriages and Deaths (where to find codes)
Where to order certificates online
Search page of the Federation of Family History Societies
A tremendous website full of links http://www.cyndislist.com/
This is just a small selection of the sites I have used for my own research. I have also spent hundreds of hours in my local Records Office.
If you are uncertain where to look next perhaps these might give you a bit of help!
nudged for later
I only started compiling my family tree at the beginning of March so as you see still a novice.
