Abstract

We present identification of candidate members of the Beta Pictoris, AB Doradus, and TW Hydrae moving star groups. Our pilot study toward the Kepler field, where a multitude of stellar parameters are available, led to a list of 19 highly probable candidates that share the same range of distance and space (tangential and radial) motion as known members in a moving group. A few candidates lack radial velocity data, but are ROSAT X-ray sources, so are considered as likely young stars.
