The American Red Cross has volunteer opportunities available to volunteer from the comfort of your own home. If you are interested in volunteering from home, please visit The American Red Cross Website and search the Opportunities section.
The Ancestry World Archives Project is volunteers from around the world creating searchable record indexes from digitized records.
How It Works…
Ancestry.com gathers historical records and scans them into their system. You look at the records and type out what you see (so that the facts in the records become searchable). The index you create is added to Ancestry’s free collections and is accessible to anyone who wants to search it.

The Find A Grave website is looking for photo volunteers.
A photo volunteer is someone who is willing to take photos of headstones within a given zip code. To become a photo volunteer, log in to www.findagrave.com and go to your Contributor Profile page by clicking on your public name in the left hand column of the page. This will bring up your Find A Grave Contributor Profile page. Click on the 'Edit My Profile' link in the upper right corner. From here, you can enter your default United States zip code or edit your Location and add the GPS coordinates for your home, business, or favorite location. Under Preferences, select to be a photo volunteer and if you would like to be emailed new requests in your area. When someone needs a photo of a particular headstone in your zip code, you will receive a request by email. More information can be found here: Photo Volunteer
