I second the sites and advice given above.
As far as Wikipedia...I used it quite frequently in my searches for all things Orthodox (OrthodoxWiki is not as complete as I wish, and I don't have much time to work on that myself
). I can't think of anything that was horribly inaccurate or scandalous.
As long as one keeps an open mind, considers the source, and uses other materials to balance and compare (such as the other sites listed above) Wikipedia, I think, it a good fill-in-the-blanks source for simple questions in layman's terms.
Best wishes to you both on this journey!
