Sharing and learning is a large part of genealogy, so don't worry about asking for help.The day will come when you then too will help others.Rather like climbing a tall ladder, you reach down to pull someone along, and you reach up to have someone pull you up, too.
But, along the lines of doing it yourself, you'll find not everything is on the internet, yet.Do you have a Family History Center near you?If so, you can go online and check the Family History Library Catalog, see if they have microfilmed land and probate records for the county of your interest.If so, you can visit the FHC and order those films out on temporary loan to the FHC, for a small fee.When the films arrive they will notify you and you can do the huntin' and a diggin' yoreself.(^_^)
I suggest if there are any indexes to the records, order those films first.Who ever is listed first on a document, their name will be the one on the index.I mentiion this as you also have to remember, women didn't count for much in the way of records, and I have a document where one of the daughters (heirs) was the first listed, but in the index her husband's name is the one listed (he was second on the document).So knowing the names of as many people who might be included on any document sometimes pays off, also.
Your local FHC may also offer some classes, they can be helpful.Do you have a genealogical society near you?They too may have classes and workshops.I have been doing this for a long time, but I still attend seminars and workshops, gleaning new things along the way.
