Volunteers’ Week 2020
1-7 June is Volunteers' Week and at this special time it’s worth recognising some of the ways our talented and enthusiastic volunteers have been contributing to the society’s work during the lockdown.
Our volunteers have been:
- participating in the development and implementation of the society's new online events programme through undertaking hosting training, writing guides, presenting content, joining in test sessions and providing feedback and advice
- participating in home indexing projects in a variety of ways including managing, indexing, proofreading and checking, and assisting other indexers with their work on the SoG Volunteer Community forum
- assisting society members with their family history enquiries at the virtual reference desk in the Community Hub on our website.
These contributions are very much appreciated by all the staff of the society.
