There are many ways for you to reach out to potential project members. The first step for most Group Projects is to set up the Public Project Website and Project Profile pages. If you set these up and keep them current, web search engines like Google™ will be able to find your project. You may then post announcements of and progress reports about your project on relevant mailing lists, message boards, and other social networking sites. You may also wish to contact traditional research groups such as surname and geographic societies.
