Volunteer for the Ohio Genealogical Society

December 14, 2022

This fall we hosted the OGS Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon at the OGS Samuel D. Isaly Library in Bellville. This was the first time we have been able to host an in-person opportunity to say thank you to our many OGS volunteers. There were almost 50 volunteers, guests, OGS staff and OGS board members present for the luncheon and social hour that occurred afterwards. Our volunteers donate their time and energy expecting nothing in return. For their kindness and generosity, we were honored to host the luncheon to let them know how grateful the OGS is for their contributions to the OGS.

There are ample opportunities to volunteer for the OGS. OGS members can serve on one of our various Board Committees, offer to assist at the Samuel D. Isaly Library in Bellville, volunteer “virtually” by assisting with projects that can be worked on remotely, join and become active in your local chapter, and so many other ways. Volunteers are the life-blood of any organization and the OGS is no different. We need your help in order to achieve our mission and be successful. Some specific volunteer opportunities that are available are:

– Volunteer to manage the OGS Periodical and Book Auction Fund Raiser
– Volunteer to work the front desk at the Samuel D. Isaly Library in Bellville
– Volunteer to assist with an OGS program or event
– Volunteer to offer an OGS webinar on a subject with which you have expertise
– Volunteer to assist in the processing and documenting of library/archive collections

There are so many ways to volunteer with the OGS and many of those opportunities only require a few hours of your time every month. If you are interested in volunteering for any of the above opportunities or if you have another idea for how you might be able to serve the OGS, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via email at: [email protected]

Thank you for all you do for your Ohio Genealogical Society!
