Staff Research Specialties
There is always at least one staff member per shift that is an expert in the following areas:
new family search
Record Management Programs
Free Research Websites
The staff are receiving hands on training for family trees which will replace new famly search in the near future. Patrons are invited to come in for an introduction lesson.
We always strive to have enough staff so that each patron who comes in can have one-on-one help.
Volunteer at the Center
The center is always looking for volunteers. The shifts are 3 hours long. 10:00-1:00, 1:00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00pm. You can choose the shift. It is not necessary to be an expert in family history. A 6 week course during your shift will teach you everything you need to know to feel comfortable. It is taught by the director of the center.
