Volunteering Opportunities

Genealogy SA relies on volunteers serving in the Library, doing project work, researching, and contributing to administration, management and governance. The contributions made by its volunteers in the past, now, and into the future are gratefully acknowledged.

Genealogy SA is guided by the Society Volunteer Policy.

Current Opportunity

School data checking

Are you a good Data Checker or believe that it is something that you would like to do?

Are you interested in helping move forward a vital exciting and expanding project?

The Schools Admissions Projects data entry volunteers are out stripping the team's current ability to check their work prior to moving the data forward to publication.
If you are interested please contact David Ballinger on saghs.randd@saghs.org.au to register your interest


Whilst workload fluctuates from time to time new volunteers are always welcomed, and play an important role in pursing the Society's objectives of promoting genealogy and promoting the Society, and in adding to the Genealogy SA resources of South Australian family history information.

Library volunteers are the friendly and welcoming face of Genealogy SA, helping newcomers, visitors and members with their researches. Library volunteers need to keep active in their own research abilities with the ever-changing world of information databases, particularly on the large subscription websites.

Research volunteers are the detectives, mainly helping those away from the Library. Research services have traditionally required finding information not easily accessed. Genealogy SA is now expanding these services to include help with research techniques, like what to do when your line of enquiry hits a brick wall.

Projects workers are the back room heroes whose patient and detailed work in collecting, collating and checking information, in transcribing and indexing and data entry, eventually produce those family history information data bases on which the Genealogy SA reputation has been built.
