We Need Your Help

Anyone can be a volunteer for as much or as little as they want. You can volunteer for whatever you have time or willingness to do, and you may quit at any time. Volunteers are the heart and back bone of this genealogy project so if you have access to Berkeley, Charleston and/or Dorchester County resources, and can give a few hours of your time to help promote free online genealogy, please contact Ginny Magee. To find out how you can help please visit our Volunteers Needed page. Remember, volunteer to do as little or as much as you can, but please volunteer!
