Volunteering in a family history library

Many organisations are seeking volunteer help at present, and even the Government recognised the vital role that volunteers play when they launched their ‘Big Society’ campaign in June.

The Society of Genealogists is currently looking for volunteers who can come into their library in London to help scan some of their vast collection of family history  records. You would need to be able to visit the library on a regular basis (either a half day or whole day per week) to help operate the Society’s scanners. Full training will be given and although little technical knowledge is required a basic familiarity with computers would be an advantage. If you would like to help in this vital work please email the Head of Library Services on librarian@sog.org.uk with details of when you would be available.
