Connections Mailing Team
Two or three volunteers are needed to arrange the printing and mailing of two issues of Connections each year - once in the spring and once in the fall.
We need a group of volunteers to maintain software and updates on three computers. Committee members would also set up any new computers, recommend software upgrades, and recommend a back-up plan. An immediate need is to look into a problem with the scanning feature of the printer.
Indexers of early BMD Records
Our society is indexing the early Santa Clara County birth, death, and marriage records from microfilm in the library. Several work together on Saturday mornings and some work individually at other times of the week.
Member Spotlight Columnist
The Spot-light column occasionally features a member in the newsletter. As the columnist, you may interview the subject in person, by telephone, or by e-mail and then write a half- to full-page article on his or her life story, interests, and genealogical research areas.
Amazon Smile Program Coordinator
This is a new position for the purpose of looking into the possibility of SCCHGS becoming a part of the Amazon Smile Program wherein a person ordering from Amazon through Amazon Smile would have a small portion of their purchase price donated to SCCHGS. If becoming a part of the program was decided by the Board to be desirable, the coordinator would communicate with Amazon to set it up and maintain it.
