Volunteer Opportunities

The Tulsa Genealogical Society is staffed entirely by volunteers. There are many opportunities available from active involvement to just a few times per year. Volunteering for TGS aslo allows you to meet and network with others who share your "passion" for genealogy.

Faithful and consistent attendance at regular meetings is definitely supportive of the organization and to be commended. However, by not serving on a committee, you are shortchanging yourself. You are not getting the full benefit of your membership.

Serving on one (or more) of the various committees within the society not only helps you increase your own personal knowledge, it also helps increase your enjoyment of TGS. It gives you more of a sense of "ownership" of the organization. Whether you can volunteer on a regular basis or just on certain projects, we have a place for you! Some positions may require some training and it will be provided to you.
