May 08, 2015
By David Pike, President of Family History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador
Genealogists are well aware that family history and genealogical societies are valuable sources of information and expertise that we can draw upon while pursuing our own individual research. Unfortunately it is also often the case that people are not well acquainted with the struggles faced by genealogical societies. Occasionally accompanying this situation is that some people seem to assume that these societies will always just be there, not necessarily realising that the societies rely upon the generosity of members and donors merely to exist, let alone to thrive.
Having served as the President of the Family History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador since 2013, I want to share some of the challenges that we face, along with putting out a call for help.
