Volunteers

Family History Connections (FHC) is a Library and Research Centre staffed by volunteer members for the benefit of FHC members and visitors.

There is a paid, part-time Office Manager, who carries out the day to day running of the organization. Volunteer members assist by carrying out all the other tasks required to competently operate the Library and assist members with their research. 

Everyone gains expertise in various fields throughout their lives, and these skills could be of assistance in the running of the Library. You could be well qualified to join our dedicated band of Volunteers in some area of interest. We welcome all new volunteers and provide training in their chosen area.

Members assist with everything from housekeeping and maintenance; publicity and helping at outside events; preparing ‘The Genealogist’ magazine; acquisition, processing and care of the Library collection; financial matters; membership; Interest Groups; information technology and computers; education and talks; transcription and indexing of records; co-ordinating Volunteers; research for members and non-members; the web site and Facebook; helping members as Library Assistants; and being on the Council.

If you are able to spare any time, from as little as a few hours a month to some time each week, we would welcome your assistance and invite you to join our very friendly band of volunteers.

Please contact the Office Manager with your details, or any queries, and you will be contacted by the Volunteers Co-ordinator.
