The research center currently is searching for volunteers to help with vitally important projects. As a volunteer, you are not only helping with crucial projects, but you can do so at your convenience: you can either work here at the museum or from your home. We have two different types of duties available from research to data entry.
This way, you can live anywhere in the country and still help contribute to historical projects.
The projects we are working on currently are:
1 - Indexing the New York National Guardsman. The New York National Guardsman was a magazine published monthly from April, 1924 to August, 1940 when much of the New York National Guard was federalized for duty. It is a good source of photographs and biographical information on higher-ranking officers.
2 - Oral History transcription. The museum has nearly 2,000 oral histories. We are in the process of transcribing these so that they can be searched. The workflow for this project is that we mail you a video on DVD and you transcribe the spoken words into a word processing document (for example, Microsoft Word) and email us the final product.
The museum is also looking for docents to staff the information desk on the museum floor.
If you are interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Any support you can give is greatly needed and appreciated!
