Researching Family Stories for 50 Years


Volunteers are the heart of NVGS! We are an all-volunteer organization, so everyone's contributions make a big difference.

To ensure a successful future, we need volunteers to serve in several key positions. Many tasks involve just a few hours per month and can be performed from home.

Look over the following list of our most critical needs, then email the contact person for each position. For more information, download the complete list of all available positions.


Staff the Library (3 hours per month)

To serve our members and the public better, we need library volunteers! Recent member surveys indicate a strong desire for expanded library access, which is currently limited to a few hours per week.

Can you offer 3 hours one day per month of your time? Shifts are flexible, but typically run from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., or 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Weekends and evenings have been requested in particular, but we will work with your schedule to ensure greater library access for all.

Make Our 50th Anniversary a Success!

A “Garden Party” fundraiser at a local winery has been proposed for 2024 to honor the 50th anniversary of our Society’s founding in 1974. An alternate site could be the NVGS Library. Our society needs considerable people-power to pull off such an event.

To join the team that plans this celebration and makes it happen, please express your interest as soon as possible. Ample time and many hands will lighten the load and add to the fun.

Spread the Word About Our Programs

An essential part of successful programming is letting members and the public know about upcoming activities. We need one volunteer to create flyers and announcements for NVGS programs and events. With existing templates, the work can be done on your home computer in several hours per month.

Host a Round Table Discussion

Do you enjoy sharing and learning with others on interesting genealogical topics? Consider hosting a Round Table discussion group once or twice a year.

Groups meet by Zoom at 11:00 am on the first Monday of each month. Meetings last one hour. Hosting requires no special expertise. Zoom details are handled by other volunteers. As host, you simply spark a conversation among peers on a topic of interest to you. It’s fun!
