Queries and surname registers provide a way for genealogy and local history researchers to contact others to exchange research information of mutual interest. Queries usually contain a specific research question about an individual, family, or topic and normally indicate what information the researcher would like to find. Surname registers simply list the family names in which the researcher is interested.

Queries have been routinely included in printed genealogical magazines and newsletters for many years. Often genealogical societies publish listings of surnames which their members are researching. Sometimes these societies have issued special surname register publications while at other times members' surname interests are listed in a section of the society's newsletter.
