Get Involved: Volunteer at the NYG&B

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Volunteers have proven themselves to be indispensable to the daily operations of the NYG&B by sharing their professional skills and expertise, providing valuable assistance to our staff, and helping enrich our eLibrary.

To all our current volunteers we extend our deep appreciation; to all our future volunteers, we welcome your participation. View a description of current volunteer opportunities, along with the qualifications and time commitment for each position. Some assignments require your presence on-site at the NYG&B during business hours while others can be accomplished in your own home on your own schedule.

Whether you prefer to work in a group or independently; whether you have professional skills you wish to lend, to acquire, or to hone; whether you love technology or don't, there is room for you to make a contribution that brings the reward of knowing that you are helping fellow NYG&B members who share your joy in genealogy.
