Ukraine SIG #Ukraine JewishGen seeking genealogy instructor and perl technician #ukraine
Attendance at the Basic JewishGen Genealogy Course is fully subscribed
within a few days of announcement. JewishGen would like to hold these
workshops more frequently but we need a volunteer to be responsible for
additional sessions (the course is fully written, you would respond to
student questions on diverse topics). Your background should include
(1) a solid knowledge of U.S. Jewish genealogy and sources;
(2) ability to research student questions quickly, and
(3) about 2 hours per day for 2 weeks, then 1 hour per day for 2 weeks.
We have a training program.
JewishGen's mailing lists use the Lyris ListManager program,
which is written in the perl programming language. We have
various technical issues, and we need someone to help
resolve them and interface with Lyris technical support.
There are issues with text-parsing, email deliverability and
networking; knowledge of MS-SQL is a plus.
If you would like to volunteer to help grow JewishGen,
please contact me directly.
