A necessary, but not a sufficient, condition of interest in cryonics must 
surely be a sense of Quest, the decision and ability to follow a 
goal/dream/ideal as a way of life, at the expense of short-term goals and 
immediate needs.

As this is not always appropriate in a nurturing parent (predominantly 
female in our species, whether for social or genetic reasons is irrelevant), 
this correlates with the preponderance of males in the cryonics movement...
(Just as it correlates with the preponderance of males in the world's 
sit-around-and-talk-half-the-day activities like taxi driving, owning a 
coffee shop, politics, philosophy? :-)

So where do we target people dominated by a sense of Quest?  Hit up some 
religious seminaries?
