Pay It Forward: Become A Volunteer

Posted on April 24, 2010

In honor of National Volunteer Week (April 18-24), the latest Expert Series article entitled Volunteer Projects Help Family Historians provides an overview of several of the most prominent genealogy-focused volunteer projects. Author Sherri Bradley, National Coordinator of USGenWeb, provides essential details about USGenWeb, RAOGK, and FamilySearch Indexing (to name a few!), and suggests some ways that you can get involved to "pay it forward".

It's true that most genealogists have benefited in some way or another from work completed by volunteers. We need to remember to give a big "Thank You" to those who help us with our research. Also, make sure to visit these websites to take advantage of the wealth of resources available.

Consider volunteering some of your time to give back and help others. Read Sherri's article to learn how to get started.
