NGSQ Archive Index and online articles: Goldmine!!
If you're stuck on a problem, chances are someone else has faced it as well and it doesn't take a whole lot of luck to find that the case study has been published through a genealogical journal. The National Genealogical Society (link is below in the link list) publishes a periodical called the NGS Quarterly and members of the Society have access to its Members section which includes an index of NGSQ articles as well as pdf versions of articles from the more recent volumes (generally those published within the last 5 yrs). These articles are a goldmine of information covering everything from searching for family bibles, geographic record issues, and case studies where you will probably be able to find answers and/or inspiration to those sticky road blocks. If you're not a member, you should definitely think about doing so.
