My ex girlfriend somehow got onto my email account and has threatened to distribute personal information to my family that would be humiliating. Is hacking an email and reading my mail illegal? And what action could I take?

You should call the police.
As attorney Shapiro states it an be criminal but you may also have a civil case...
Accessing your email without your permission was a crime, and may also give you grounds for a civil lawsuit. You will have additional civil claims if she follows through on her threat. But to prevent her from revealing what she found, you will need to quickly get a restraining order.
