You'll be getting lots of interesting ideas from experienced Listers on who
they look for and where they go.
But dare I suggest that there is another way you could look at this
How much time do you want to devote to it?
Pat devotes more time than I do - and therefore follows branches all over
the place. For me, this is just a pleasant diversion amongst many other
interests that I have, which occupy more time.
So - I just follow up the interesting ones amongst my forebears (you know -
murderers, convicts, bigamists, entertainers, eccentrics etc.)
I think I've got the French for it right - "A chaque un, son gout".
