We are looking for individuals to join as Australia Team Associates!
Join the AustraliaGenWeb Team as an Australia Team Associate to help bring free genealogy resources to the internet! There are many opportunities for you to help AustraliaGenWeb grow and we are always excited to have new volunteers.
Rather than focus on having a single person handle a single state or territory, we are organizing our states and territories using teams of volunteers. Some may find the data for entry, some may type the information and others may actually do the data entry. Help is easily available to you at each of these levels of volunteering, making the projects fun and easy.
Our goal is to make genealogical and historical data available on the internet, and we have been succeeding for over ten years now!
AustraliaGenWeb is a part of the WorldGenWeb Project, a not-for-profit organization composed of a group of volunteers who coordinate or assist in providing genealogical and historical information for Australia. Our volunteers are people just like you ... individuals who have a desire to learn more about their ancestors, where they lived, and what their lives may have been like.
If you enjoy the research, let us know at which level you would like to participate and we'll help you get started today.
How can you participate?
A core value of AustraliaGenWeb volunteers is the desire to share valuable genealogical and historical information with others. Participation comes at many different levels of involvement.
Digitizers - Digitizers transcribe and submit information and data that can be published on the DataBoards or on one of the websites. For more information on being a Digitizer you'll need to contact Data Acquisition Manager.
Lookup Volunteer - Lookup volunteers offer to do lookups in genealogical and historical material that they own or have access to. If you have access to cemetery records, county histories, church records, or any other genealogically or historical useful resources, then contact us and we'll add you to our Lookup Coordinator
Australia Team Associates
Australia Team Associates - The team associates are key to getting genealogical and historical data on-line. Please read the Australia Team Associates information below.
Australia Team Associates manage and maintain the state or territory web sites. The only prerequisites are having a sincere interest in the genealogy and history of the county(ies) they participate in. The following are just some roles that a Australia Team Associate might be involved with:
- Building a cemetery list for one or more states/territories
- Providing look-up resources
- Locating data that can be transcribed and placed on-line
- Transcribing data for either short or long-term projects
- Developing one or more county specific pages
An Australia Team Associate doesn't need to know anything about HTML and building websites. AustraliaGenWeb can provide all the software tools necessary to build the website. If you can type you can build a website!
It's important to note that data that is contributed on one of the AustraliaGenWeb hosted websites is being contributed to AustraliaGenWeb and not to the individual Australia Team Associates and it remains the property of the contributor.
If you're interested, please contact our National Coordinator.
