MGC Volunteer Program


The Volunteer Program involves many aspects of genealogy research.  Volunteers help patrons, index obituaries and other materials, conduct tours, teach classes, and digitize rare books.  While helping others, many volunteers learn more about MGC and ways of researching family history.

Duties also include attendance at a quarterly meeting.  At this meeting volunteers learn more about each department in the Library, talk with other volunteers about activities, and hear about special events and opportunities open only to volunteers.

Please read the descriptions on the Volunteer Application (49KB) and check activities of interest.  Mail or deliver the form to MGC to the address below. You will be contacted for training and scheduling.  A monthly calendar will be sent informing all volunteers of special activities.
