Wow!  What an incredible opportunity to be a part of your Longmont Genealogical Society!  We need volunteers to help in various jobs during the day.  These jobs need only a few hours of your time and not all day.  You will still be able to attend some classes with your paid seminar registration.  This is a great way to get to know your fellow LGS members and be a part of your genealogical society.  We need your help, so come join us!  Please let Ted or any other officer or board member know of your interests and availability and we will put you in a great volunteer slot.  We anticipate a successful seminar with the help of our loyal members.  LGS thanks you!


We need members to serve for an hour each throughout the day in these kinds of positions:

  •      Registration tables - check in visitors and give them their materials.

  •      Hospitality - greet a speaker, verify that room is set up properly, start and end class.

  •      Lunch - set table cloths etc., receive food from caterer, give box lunches to guests.

  •      Exhibits - set out materials from societies that are not going to staff their tables.

  •      Equipment - help set up projection equipment for speakers.

Sign up at the August meeting, or contact ted.bainbridge@gmail.com

New benefit of LGS membership:  Beginning with our September meeting, the speakerís presentation will be followed by help/brainstorming sessions in our meeting room.  Informal group discussion of questions or problems members have encountered and solutions other members can suggest.  Great for beginners!  Get help with brick walls!
