The Jacksonville Historical Society Archive volunteers provide over 2,000 work hours annually- not including the Gingerbread House Extravaganza! The JHS Archive averages sixteen consistent volunteers who work on a weekly basis. They assist Archivist Andrew Morrow with duties such as cataloging collections that are made up of books, blueprints, miscellaneous paper materials, photos, postcards, scrapbooks and many other objects. These collections are then made accessible to the public via our online catalog that can be searched via our website, http://www.jaxhistory.org/research/. JHS would not be able to provide the level of information to the many daily archive requests if not for the dedication, support and time volunteers give the society.
The age range for our volunteers is 16 – 87 years young! Many of these volunteers are the happy faces that great and serve you at the monthly program series held at Old St. Andrews.
