Hello and welcome. I'm sure you'll find this forum a great source of information. When I have a question, I often use the 'search' function before I post, since many times my question has already been asked & answered. That's a good thing when I need an immediate answer!
I also recommend you get involved with a local beekeeping club. Many clubs offer beginner classes, and nothing beats having a mentor or two. Michigan has a number of good clubs:http://www.michiganbees.org/whoswho.htmhttp://www.sembabees.org/
