A Helping Hand

The American-French Genealogical Society sent out a request for assistance recently. The AFGS has been extremely busy with new and returning members, many of whom have been doing research at the AFGS Center in Woonsocket.
While this is great news, the AFGS is short-handed, and reports that it is difficult  to have enough experienced researchers on hand to help their newest members learn the ropes. So, in an effort to help spread the word, we’re asking our local and regional readers on behalf of the AFGS: Can you lend a hand?
The AFGS is open 11 AM to 4 PM on Mondays, 1 PM to 9 PM on Tuesdays, and 10 AM to 4PM on Saturdays. Any help you can give would be welcome, so please contact Jan Burkhart at AFGS, P.O. Box 830, Woonsocket, RI, 02895-0870 or misskoko@aol.com and she will contact you to arrange a time.
A few hours a week, or a month, can make a big difference in helping new members get started—and stay excited—about their research.
