What’s good to find other researchers, is also good to find other folks that would like to purchase your book :o)

See Genealogy this issue as well.

No one is an island – get involved. One of the easiest ways to grow and learn as a researcher is to get out there and interact with other researchers. Book learning not your thing? The more friends you have, the more information they can give you in an informal setting. Try genealogy, history, lineal, and other service organizations!

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.

Have an “ancestor swap”.  Have a pre-determined time period that you and a fellow researcher (or group) works on your line while you work on theirs.  This can sometimes produce better results than just “picking their brain” for helpful suggestions on a problem you have.
