The SoG has been asked to pass the following request onto the family history community
The National Archives needs you!
The National Archives is looking for volunteers to take part in an online community pilot. They need your help to trial an online community to see if it could help them develop and improve their online services. They’ll be using the community to get feedback on new features and functions they’re developing, as well as creating a space for generating new ideas. As a test they are controlling the number of people who can sign up, so to start with they only need 100 volunteers who will be signed up on a first come, first served basis. They will also keep the community closed so that only members can view and interact with the content. If you are not selected for the initial trial, you’ll be able to join their waiting list – they’ll then notify you if they decide to expand the community and increase the number of members. The trial will run for six months between March and August 2012. If they then decide that the trial has been successful, they will aim to establish a permanent community as part of their package of online services. Please register your interest to take part in the pilot by providing some basic details by clicking on the following link: http://www.dotsurvey.me/b2mand7-4e3ir3b
I hope to be taking part in this exercise too so that TNA’s support for family historians can impove.
All the best
