If you wish to join the Society and commence a research project of your own interest, you will be most welcome to do so.

One volunteering need for the society is the cataloguing of donated archive material including paper-based material, maps and images.

Oral histories are another priority, including making the recordings and transcribing the results.

Training is available for all volunteers.
