Where would we be without them?

Today December 5th is International Volunteers Day. On this day I salute the brilliant band of volunteers who make our genealogy journey so much smoother.

Where would we be without the blog posts, bulletin boards, indexes, learning activities, lookups, mailing lists, online resources, photo archives, social media friends, society members and officers,  transcriptions, tweets, videos and websites that are freely available to us.

The work of this mostly silent army of workers enables us to have a rewarding genealogical journey.

If you have availed yourself of any of the freely available resources created by volunteers but have not yet joined the volunteer army please consider signing up to a project and giving something back to the community that has helped you so much.

Volunteers, I salute you.
