We have a loyal group of volunteers, but we are always in need of more persons. It is an opportunity to learn and have fellowship with others. We are a group that enjoys researching family history and learning the roots behind a family’s existence. Digging for those roots uncovers fascinating stories of family migration, survival, and growth.
Come join our team of volunteer and share the joy of helping others find the ancestors they never knew existed. Call or email us if you would like to be a volunteer at the Bureau County Genealogical Society library. We would be excited to have you join us!
