Volunteer and Help Thousands!


Posted By Phyllis Kramer
JewishGen needs a Genealogy Instructor and a LYRIS/PERL trained technician.

Attendance at the Basic JewishGen Genealogy Course is fully subscribed within a few days of announcement. JewishGen would like to hold these workshops more frequently but we need a volunteer to be responsible for additional sessions (the course is fully written, you would respond to student questions on diverse topics).  
Your background for this volunteer positision should include:
  1. Solid knowledge of U.S. Jewish genealogy and sources
  2. Ability to research student questions quickly
  3. Approximately 2 hours per day for 2 weeks, then 1 hour per day for 2 weeks.
Our JewishGen Discussion List uses Lyris, written in PERL. There are various technical issues and we need someone to interface with Lyris technical support. There are email deliverability, text-parsing, and networking issues. Knowledge of SQL-MS databases a plus.

If you would like to volunteer to help grow JewishGen, please contact me directly by clicking here.
