Don't recruit. Just talk about discoveries. Compare and contrast what
you are finding with DNA and paper. These posts seem to stay up. Make
the link to the project page part of your tag line.;-) If/When people
ask questions you should reply off list. And last but never least if
you don't own the list ask the owner first.:-)
> I finally have a website up and running for the Bear-Bair-Barr Surname DNA Study [www.geocities.com/Bear_DNA_Project] (note the underscores). After I add a few updates and corrections (including the ISOGG peer review image), I would like to publicize it on some surname message boards through Rootsweb and other forums. I know that Rootsweb boards have some strict policies on posting about DNA studies. I tried to find some old posts about this topic and didn't have any luck. Could anyone who has posted recruiting messages successfully share any tips they have learned?
