Volunteering at Godfrey

  Looking for a way to give back and love genealogy? 

          Have you ever thought about volunteering for Godfrey? 

 

 

We would love your help! Here are a few of the opportunities we offer.

Database builder: As a database builder, you will digitize materials or help transcribe information in spreadsheets. You may work with original church and funeral home records or on the Ed Laput Connecticut Cemetery Collection.
Family History Center Volunteer: Our in-house Family History Center offers patrons onsite access to microfilms rented from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. As a volunteer, you will help patrons use the films and, if needed, decipher records.
         Genealogy Researcher: As a genealogy researcher, you will respond to requests for research.
         Projects may be simple look ups or require more extensive research. 

          Marketer: As a marketing volunteer, you will help create blog posts, press releases, and
          other marketing materials.  Love programming? You may be asked to help revamp our website.
          Love people? Volunteer to "man" our booth at a genealogy conference.

         Presenter: As a presenter, you will give presentations at public libraries on our behalf. Topics can be an
         overview of our resources, basic genealogy, or something more specialized.

         Reference Assistant: As a reference assistant, you will greet patrons, offer tours of the library, and
         guide them in the use of our resources.


Did you know we offer benefits? 

Volunteers receive specific training for their volunteer task; monthly group training; and premium membership to the library, allowing online access, event entry and book sale discounts.
