Local government could lead an effort to promote international family reunions in the location of the family origin - in this case the Town of Moffat.
The development of email and social networking makes it feasible to market a family origin tour at relatively low cost. The Town would work with hotels, tourism agencies, and touring companies to set up a tour based in Moffat. The touring company would pick up the tour at the Manchester Airport and bring them back to Moffat. One day tours around the area would be conducted. Some meetings with local persons named Moffat would add interest.
A possible market penetration of from .5 to 1% of the total market might be possible.
0.5% of 20,000 people = 100 people
* 7 days * £ 100 per day = £ 70,000 into the local economy.
An additional optional week to ten day tour should also be offered for those who want to see more of the UK.
If this effort worked for the name Moffat it could also be employed with other names based in the region that have a large number of people of that name in the US.
