How to Volunteer

There are many ways that you can volunteer not only for Nicollet County Genealogy Project, but the MNGenWeb Project as well. There almost as many ways to help as there are reasons.

To submit information to the Nicollet County Genealogy project, contact the County Coordinator for instructions. Please do not submit anything that is under copyright unless, you are the copyright holder or have written permission for it to be displayed by the MNGenWeb on one of our county sites. Permission for copyrighted material must accompany the material at the time of submission or the material will not be displayed.

We welcome original material, cemetery transcriptions, photographs, documents and ephemera that is related to Nicollet County's People and its history. If there is a group or organization wishing to help with the placement of material we are happy to work with them in getting the material online. We are always looking for people willing to transcribe documents, index records, photograph cemeteries or other places of interest in Nicollet County or any of the 66 other Minnesota Counties. Our goal is to keep as much Minnesota Genealogy and History in a free online atmosphere that the only requirement for access is a computer that has an internet connection.

To adopt a Minnesota County needing a caretaker please visit the MNGenWeb Project's Adopt a County page by clicking HERE. We do have a few requirements for a County Coordinator, but we also have many volunteer opportunities for just about anyone who wishes to help.

A list of Nicollet County MNGenWeb Volunteers can be found in the RESOURCES section of this website.
