As an all-volunteer organization, volunteers are the backbone of the Rogue Valley Genealogical Society. Volunteer activities at RVGS have built and strengthened the Jackson County Genealogy Library collection. In addition to serving as librarians, volunteers have collected obituaries, death certificates, wedding announcements, birth announcements, land records, will and probate records, historical events from newspapers, and so on. The collected records were then indexed and proofread by other volunteers. The indexes in turn were later transcribed or scanned into database software and then proofread once again. Copies of the resulting indexes can be accessed at the Jackson County Genealogy Library Website. RVGS is deeply indebted to the volunteers for the work they perform. Every year at the Christmas meeting of RVGS, volunteers are honored for their contributions to the society.
