MCGS needs you!  We are a 100% volunteer organization and we have many ways you can assist by volunteering with us.  Here are some examples:

  • Board Members -  Board Meetings are held once a month, virtually.  If you're not sure what position you'd like to fill, consider joining as an At-Large member first.
  • Officers - The Leaders of our Board! 
  • Monthly Meetings - When we meet in person, the room needs prepped, and we like to greet our visitors personally. 
  • Special Projects - Recently we assisted the Missing In America project.  Are you interested in tackling a One-Place Study or helping us transcribe records? Suggestions for future projects are very welcome.
  • Library & Mentorship - Share your expertise by assisting members and visitors who need advice.
  • Field Trips - Organize a trip to your favorite research venue; we're open to suggestions and would appreciate the coordination. 
  • Sales - Help our Publicity chair with our Zazzle store, See's Candy fundraisers, and more.
  • Website - Found an error or have a suggestion for how to improve our site, please let us know! 

Interested in any of the above or have additional ideas? Contact Vickie Settle, President
