The motherlode of untapped resources can be found in the 240 Baileys
and at least 38 variants at FTDNA. Fewer than half of these are
members of the Bailey project. Unfortunately, there is no way to
target the non-joiners for recruitment, unless they allow themselves
to be scanned by FTDNA for matching and they happen to match existing
members of the project. Even then, it would be a very tedious process
for the project admin to collate the match lists of all members and
pick out the same-surname matches who don't yet belong to the group.
