The Gift that Gives Back…

Toronto Branch is entirely staffed by volunteers. We rely on volunteers to organize, promote and provide technical support for Branch meetings and workshops, maintain the Branch website and social media communications, respond to queries, contribute to and produce our newsletter Toronto Tree, develop Branch publications, coordinate and work on our special projects, and much more…

Volunteering does require some commitment of time and effort, but it’s a gift that gives back. In addition to the satisfaction of being able to use their skills and experience to benefit others, and being part of an active community of fellow family historians, our volunteers gain a closer connection to Branch operations and a deeper understanding of Toronto records and repositories.

To find out what volunteer positions are currently available for Toronto Branch members, visit our Volunteer Opportunities page… whether you can spare a few hours a week or a few hours a month, it all helps!
