In case you don't know it, all people working with the NEGenWeb Project are volunteers. We receive no compensation for the time and effort that we put in to our particular area. We are all motivated by a desire to help others that are researching in Nebraska.|
The NEGenWeb Project is always in need for volunteers who have a desire to help other people who are researching in Nebraska. We have a need for volunteers with any level of expertise. All it takes is a desire to help others. It is helpful if you have your own web access, but that is not always necessary. If you have access to information that is copyright free, you can make copies and send it snail mail to the local county coordinators. You just need to be able to contact them by email and volunteer.
We often have counties which need someone to take them on as a county coordinator. They are shown on the County Selection list with an 'Adopt Me' image. If you are interested, please check these two sites for more information:
The County Coordinators can use help in many ways:
We can use help at the State NEGenWeb Project level too. We have some counties that have foster parents, and could use coordinators. This would involve more time on your part. We have help for those volunteers that would like to learn to code webpages.
Specific ideas for volunteers at the State NEGenWeb Project:
Our County Unknown, Resource Center, and NEGenWeb Archives sites can all use volunteers too. Please contact the coordinator for each site, if you would like to volunteer:
The NEGenWeb Project County Unknown site is a place where researchers can find help for their research in Nebraska when they do not know the county:
Contact the County Unknown Coordinator to volunteer. You can find the Coordinator's email address by visiting the NEGenWeb Project County Unknown.
The NEGenWeb Project Resource Center can also use help:
Contact the Resource Center Coordinator to volunteer. You can find the Coordinator's email address by visiting the NEGenWeb Project Resource Center.
The NEGenWeb Project Archives can always use material pertaining to Nebraska, and help in preparing material. They have special guidelines to follow, and these can be found at the USGenWeb Archives Project Guidelines.
Contact the NEGenWeb Archives Coordinators to volunteer. You can find the Coordinator's email address by visiting the NEGenWeb Project Archives.
As you can see, we can use volunteers at every level in the NEGenWeb Project. If you would like to volunteer at the State level, please contact the State Coordinator. For the County Unknown, Resource Center, Archives and County sites, please contact the coordinator for that site.
