Our current volunteer coordinator needs to take some time off the family issues, but we need a
person to coordinate volunteer information for the next few month. Can you help?
Not only is the Irish Fair happening in August - with volunteers to be scheduled to staff the
IGSI table at the Fair - but the same work needs to happen for the Family History Day and 
MGS October conference.  And there are volunteer opportunities with the IGSI Library on 
the horizon as well.
Your Tasks:
Emails from people wanting to volunteer for IGSI committees or projects will be forwarded
to you.  You will connect the volunteer(s) with the IGI committee or project needing help.
Since this is short-term position, we'll pair you with a Board member for advice and support.
It's a great way to get to know more about the organization and IGSI members.  And, you can
work from home!
If you are willing to help, please send an email to

The Irish Fair MN has come and gone for this year! 

We did get some rain on Sunday but it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirit.

I want to personally thank the great volunteers who turned out to help at the IGSI table:  Ann Eccles, Cindy Goldstein, Jean Gorman, Mark Hartnett, Gigi & Bill Hickey, Jane Kennedy, Rick Larkin, Kevina Munnich, John & Pat Sammons, Tim & Kim Scanlan, Colleen Slater, Carol Tindell, Bob & Beth Vought, and Bob Zimmerman.

Another thanks to Mark Hartnett for his extra effort in coordinating the whole process and keeping us on our toes!  Also, a special thanks to Mary Wickersham who made our presentation, “Fact, Myth, or I was told . . .”  success with her humor and knowledge of Irish genealogy!

Without you who are willing to step up and help spread the word on what IGSI is and what we offer, our organization would not be the same.

My heartfelt thanks

Audrey Leonard, President, Irish Genealogical Society Intl.
