Although not unknown for a small group such as ours with members from all walks of life, and areas of research, to find another member of the same extended family amongst our group, you are more likely to find fellow researchers by posting your surname interests in a wider arena.
The difference between Surname interest postings and online family trees is that the former is simply a list of names, places and date ranges, as opposed to full family trees showing relationships and more.
Also consider message boards, many of which are by surname, where you can post a short message on who you are researching, where, and when.
If you have another site to recommend for this list, log in, and add a comment below.
