Do you have experience researching your family history and want to share your expertise with others? Do you get excited when you talk about or visit the Midwest Genealogy Center? Do you care about preserving the past and have an eye for detail? If any of the above describe you, you might be interested in volunteering at MGC!
At MGC, we currently have over 50 volunteers who help in various capacities. Some of the volunteer opportunities include giving tours of MGC, volunteering at MGC special events, providing genealogy assistance, map encapsulation, and indexing.
Indexing projects include working with MGC book, microfilm, and archival collections to collect genealogical information and can be worked on from home or at MGC. To view completed indexing projects, visit MGC’s database Quick Look. This database contains a variety of family history information from books, archival collections, Bible records, and more.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, the process is simple. First, download a PDF volunteer application or pick up a paper application at MGC. Then, drop off the application at MGC or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The volunteer coordinator will be in touch to discuss current volunteer opportunities. Please note that all MGC volunteers are required to submit to a background check.
Volunteering can be a rewarding experience and MGC values our volunteers’ hard work and dedication. Without the help of volunteers, MGC would not be able to offer exceptional service to our customers.
