Our group is run entirely by volunteers! It's a great way to give back to your community! There are several volunteer positions open at SVCGG and we hope that if you are interested you'll contact us.
The website currently resides on name.com and Atom (html editor) and Pinegrow are being used to update the site. Sourcetree using Git is used for maintaining version control on the website.
The membership database is currently tracked using an Access Database. All of the forms and reports needed to be able to complete the membership chair duties are already setup. It’s simply a matter of opening the proper form or report, inputting information if needed, and printing or saving the output. This means there are minimal clicks to complete any task.
A class planner is currently tracked in an Excel spreadsheet. Each month 3 classes are scheduled – a research class, a technology class, and a computer software class. A class on Reunion for the Mac takes the place of the software class every other month.
Anther way to volunteer is through indexing with FamilySearch. FamilySearch has undertaken digitizing and indexing their vast collection of microfilmed records. Thousands of new volunteers throughout the world can be involved in indexing these important records. SVCGG has been designated as an indexing team. Our indexers try to index at least one half-hour batch per month.
