Somerset OPC Project Volunteer Form

We realise that not everyone has the same level of experience, and available resources. There are always people within our OPC community that you can ask for advice. Most of us start with little more than an abundance of enthusiasm and a desire to help others with their genealogical quest. As one of our volunteers recently said I don't have anything to offer but my own enthusiasm! That is a very good place to start.

If you feel you would like to contribute to the efforts of this project. Please indicate your parish(es) of interest. Also indicate if you already have some records or information that can be contributed. What facilities you have available to support any research you may do, e.g. access to Family History Centre, digital camera, etc. Also please give and indication of where you live (address not necessary but helpful and will not appear on the website).
