Successful research involves identifying a specific person of interest and developing a focused research question about that person. Genealogical research questions are usually centered on problems of identity, relationship, or circumstance. Most of the case studies published in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (NGSQ) resolve questions of relationship—for example, identifying the parents of a specific individual. Several NGSQ case studies have also delved into questions of circumstance, such as why an immigrant wound up in a certain geographic location.
