52 Weeks To Better Genealogy - Volunteer Potential


52 Weeks To Better Genealogy posted their Challenge #46 on Volunteering. Here is their challenge:

Week 46: Assess your volunteer potential. The last two weeks’ challenges focused on volunteerism and local genealogy societies (which are also dependent on volunteers). Take a look at your skill set and determine what types of opportunities best suit you. Do you speak two languages? Maybe you can offer translation services. Do you only have free time after the kids are in bed? Perhaps an indexing project is best for you. Knowing your strengths can help shape your research process. If you take this challenge a step further and actually volunteer, give yourself a pat on the back. Bloggers are encouraged to assess and share their own skill sets, as well as any volunteer experiences they have. This challenge runs from Saturday, November 13, 2010 through Friday, November 19, 2010.

I think volunteering is very important. I have benefitted from volunteers. A recent example was when I needed a Mississippi Death Certificate. Linda Durr Rudd picked this up for me for only $5.00 and emailed it to me. This was a great help to me and only took a couple days.

I have enjoyed volunteering by doing the following:

Here are some articles I have done that might assist you in choosing your own Volunteering choices:
