All our positions are for unpaid member volunteers.  We have no paid staff.  If you are a member of HCGS and would like to become more active in our chapter, and do more for fellow members and others researching their ancestry, consider volunteering for one of our roles. Thanks for your interest and consideration!  Unless specifically noted below please contact Mark Steinke, HCGS Corresponding Secretary, at info@hcgsohio.org or by calling 513-956-7078.
Plase also see the About HCGS page for listings of other vacant positions not specifically listed below.
Program Director
Our Education Director takes care of the Annual Seminar and classes that we offer with the Public Library for newer genealogists. The Program Director on the other hand is responsible for our regular monthly meetings or sometimes a special meeting. We do not usually meet in June, July, or August unless a great opportunity presents itself. The Board can offer suggestions of who to contact and places to meet and what programs we might want to have OR if you are experienced you may go it alone. The primary responsibility is making the necessary phone calls and following up on the details for a successful program. Contact me or any Board member for additional information. No experience is needed, just a love of genealogy. If you are interested in finding out more about this role, please contact Kenny Burck at president@hcgsohio.org.
Recording Secretary
Are You Our Next Chapter Recording Secretary? Our Recording Secretary position is open. The duties consist primarily of attending HCGS Board meetings and taking the minutes. This is a great entry-level position on the Board, as the only skills you need are taking notes, preparing the minutes, and distributing them to Board members. Many times the Recording Secretary will get to know the duties of the other Board directors and officers and decide to take on a bigger challenge down the road. It is possible for an out-of-town member to take this role, as the Recording Secretary can attend the Board meeting online. If you are interested in finding out more about this role, please contact Kenny Burck at president@hcgsohio.org.
The Tracer
We encourage article submissions on topics concerning Hamilton County, Ohio, genealogy and history to The Tracer. Articles should inform readers about research in genealogical records, databases, or repositories of local interest or discuss historical events that impacted the lives of our Hamilton County ancestors.
If you are interested in submitting an original article, please send a query to Eileen Muccino, HCGS Tracer Editor, at tracer@hcgsohio.org with the topic and how the article will inform readers about Hamilton County genealogy or history.
HCGS is always in need of people willing to index records such as deeds, wills, or veterans' records, among others. This work usually can be done in your own home. Please contact Mark Steinke, HCGS Corresponding Secretary, at info@hcgsohio.org.
