> 2) We registered with the Guild of One Name Studies (GOONS),

> 3) We arrange to have flyers distributed at genealogical

> 4) We arrange to have articles about our project published in
> various UK genealogical publications.
> 5) We respond to messages posted by British researchers on
> the various Phillips message boards.
> Hope this gives you some ideas to pursue.
