Ukraine SIG Projects and Volunteering (was "Asking for maps") #ukraine
Aharon Refael Schvetz asked about Ukraine SIG taking on a map project.
JewishGen, including Ukraine SIG operates with very few exceptions, by
volunteers. Gesher Galicia is a separate organization. If Aharon or
anyone is volunteering to take on a map project such as the one Jay
Osborne has been working on for many years, we would gladly have you
take on such a project. When people ask if the SIG can take on the
project, the answer is generally a question asked right back - are you
willing to take on what you are suggesting?
As volunteers, all of us have our plates full attempting to ind a
balance between our full time day jobs, our families and our volunteer
jobs. The "SIG" is not a private company - it is completely dependent on
a volunteer work force. Are you ready to join the hundreds of people
already volunteering? Please don't suggest projects unless you are
willing to take on the work it involves.
