Spring is here – our native poppies are blooming, birds are singing (sometimes too early in the morning for me!), and the sun is warm and mellow. It’s also a time of new beginnings, new plans, and new ideas. 

At the California Genealogical Society (CGS), it’s a time to welcome new volunteers who come with fresh ideas, lots of energy, and a contagious enthusiasm for the world of ancestral mysteries.

And…if you forgot to make a New Year’s resolution, this is your chance to redeem yourself!  Donate your time and talent to CGS — become a CGS volunteer.

On our website, we maintain an ongoing list of volunteer positions that need to be filled. For our purposes this month, however, we have three jobs that we would like to highlight as our 2015 Spring Specials! Please take a look:

Tech Guy/Gal – We have a crack team of tech-savvy members who are responsible for maintaining our computer system. Maintenance is scheduled 3-4 hours on Mondays. Commitment is once a month. Training is provided. If you’ve got the skills, we’ve got the keyboards!

Wordsmiths – You love to write. You can be cryptic. You are pretty sure someday scientists will discover a writing gene in your family (wouldn’t that be fun?). Meanwhile, CGS needs: a Blog Editor (preferably who knows about “Blogger”); proofreaders; and members who have worked with publications in general. Training? Of course!

Desk Duty – Basically, this is the receptionist position in the CGS Library. And you know that receptionists rule. They are the pulse of the organization. They are the go-to-guys-or-gals. And they only have to work once a month! (Library hours: Thursday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.) A great way to get to know the ins and outs of CGS and some ancestry gossip!

Interested? Contact Kathleen Beitiks for all the details.
