Our First VGA Gives Back Group Meeting

On Saturday, January 15, 2022, a group of VGA members got together under the leadership of Linda Debe to learn ways to help Give Back to the genealogical community by transcribing and tagging records.

Linda first demonstrated how to register and navigate the Library of Congress website’s virtual volunteer program titled “By the People.” Next, she demonstrated how to register for the Citizen Archivist program of the National Archives (US) and how to tag documents.

We hope that even if you weren’t in attendance at this meeting, that you will register to volunteer for these two websites and try to transcribe and tag some records. We plan on sharing our volunteer results in the VGA Members-Only Facebook Group.

Pictured here are some of the members that attended:

Making hearts for Giving Back!

VGA Gives Back will meet again on Saturday, February 19, 2022 at 5:00pm Eastern. Members can find the link to register in the Upcoming Webinars area of the Members Center.
