Family Tree Researcher: Pickering, North Yorkshire
If you are interested in history and genealogy this could be the volunteering opportunity for you!
- A couple of hours per week with occasional day trips, ideally on a Tuesday
- Pickering, North Yorkshire
Our Women’s Royal Air Force veteran has been researching her family tree but has come up against a stump! She has found out lots of interesting facts about her family but her health and eye sight mean that she now needs a little help.
We would like to find a volunteer who is able to help collate the research and documents our veteran has already collected and continue with more research via the internet. There are also important places to our veteran’s family tree that she would like to visit in order to carry out more in depth research, such as parish records and county archives. These trips may take longer than a couple of hours depending where they are. We would like the volunteer to accompany our veteran on public transport for these longer trips.
For this role we would like our volunteer to be friendly and patient. We would also like them to be accepting and non-judgemental.
We will require a Disclosure and Barring Service check and for the volunteer to be over 18 years old. You will also need to be a car driver and have access to a car for volunteering purposes.
If you would like to apply for this worthwhile volunteering opportunity you will be asked to complete an application form and attend an informal interview.
We will support you with training and an induction, out of pocket expenses and ongoing support so that you can get as much out of your volunteering with us.
