At workshops, frequently we wear our surnames, be they as a list on our name tag, on our note taking material, or on our clothing.  Consider having a shirt made promoting your book(s) and wearing it to family, genealogy and research repositories and/or gatherings.

Don’t overlook your local and regional genealogy events, retreats, genealogy, ancestor or book fairs!  While networking and finding hot leads are traditionally considered when attending ancestor fairs, you never know when you’ll meet someone researching one or more of your lines at any genealogy or family event.  When preparing to go consider having a name badge or ribbon (or even a shirt) made that details at least your main research lines.  Some events provide bulletin boards, chat areas, etc. – but it never hurts to increase your chances to “go above and beyond” planned activities to search out other researchers on your line.
