Genealogy research is a hot topic these days, and the Research Library at the Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society is one of the busiest resources in the area. We are looking for various volunteers, with various skill-sets, to help computerize our obituary card index for online access. We are undertaking this project so that we can keep up with the volume of requests we get for obituaries and death notices.
We are seeking those with an interest in genealogy, skill in research, data entry, microfilm and/or administrative work, to volunteer on this project. There are three specific "jobs" that we need volunteers to do.
1. Data Entry
Duties include entering names, death dates, newspaper citations, and other information into a computerized database.
