FGS performs a valuable volunteer service to new and struggling genealogists through its "Ask a Genealogist" program at the John F. Germany Library on two Saturdays each month. We typically have a society volunteer on-site on the first Saturday of the month from 9:00 AM to Noon and on the third Saturday of the month from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The service allows people to ask questions that most of us can answer, sometimes with the help of the genealogy librarians on duty at the time.
We need additional volunteers to help share the responsibility with other members. It is a very rewarding opportunity to help others and to learn about different types of research.
If you are willing to help with this important service, please contact Drew Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
