JGSI Volunteer Opportunities

Morasha newsletter: Have you knocked down a brick wall? Found a new resource?  If you would like to contribute an article or want to help with editing or mailings, please email morashaeditor@jgsi.org.

Indexing, photography and other special projects: Take photographs of tombstones at cemeteries, memorial plaques at synagogues, or pages of historic books. Index data from the images. Organize information on the computer to prepare it for adding to our website.  Work with other members to organize other projects of interest. JGSI can take on as many special projects as there are volunteers to implement them. Please email projects@jgsi.org

Technical helpers: Help with the website, databases, and/or zoom management. Email mikek@jgsi.org.

Programs: Have something you want to share? Want to speak at a future event? Email programs@jgsi.org.

Programming Committee: The programming committee seeks 2-3 volunteers who have an interest in evaluating future JGSI speakers.  Beginning genealogists are welcome as we try to craft programming for membership at all levels.  The time commitment is approximately 2 hours a month. Email programs@jgsi.org.

JGSI Library:  The library is open from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm (prior to the presentation) as part of our monthly meetings. We need volunteers to assist with  organization of library materials and to help people to use them. Please email Library@jgsi.org.
