A Word From Our Volunteers

"As I index and type each name I feel so privileged to think that I am in some small way helping someone to trace their family - and the joy that they will find in getting to know their ancestors”
~ Angela ~

"I love indexing! Now instead of feeling guilty when I sit down to watch TV in the evenings, I have my laptop open to an indexing project. What a joy it is to know I am contributing to a great work! I am so grateful for this opportunity – it will be a lifelong passion."
~ Cathy ~
