Creating Personal Acts of Genealogical Kindness

Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK) will be offline for an undisclosed amount of time due to the death of one of his founders, Bridgett Schneider. She was a wonderful contributor and visionary in the genealogical community and will be greatly missed. But, her spirit and mission, her vision, can still go on with us, the genealogical community. All of us that research, blog, abstract and transcribe, scan and photograph, lecture and teach can take up the realms that Bridget and her team started and create your own personal acts of genealogical kindness to others. We can take what she started and continue forth helping others.

Here are some things that we, as a genealogical and/or historical community can do to share our talents and do the types of genealogical kindness that Bridgett so inspired.
Some of you have already been doing these random acts of genealogical kindness. I know of several researchers that have helped me; a few of them actually made the different in solving a family mystery. Here are a few things I am very thankful for, that have been done for me personally that shows the true spirit of RAOGK: These are just a few experiences I have encountered, I could probably write a book on how many have helped me.

Hopefully, the RAOGK website will be back up and running. But, until then we can continue this great work that Bridgett, her husband and others started. This can be our way to let them know we appreciate the hard work they have done.

Has anyone helped you, or are you helping someone by sharing your time and talents. Come share with us in the Genealogical Forum some of your experiences with acts of genealogical kindness.
