The Beverly Historical Society needs your help! We have three wonderful sites and an extraordinary museum collection, but a very small staff. If you can give us a few hours each month, we have some work for you. Monthly projects will be posted here. Information on additional projects will be sent by email. You will receive our gratitude (and refreshments) for your efforts.
To set up a convenient time, or stop by either Wednesday evenings from 6-9 or Fridays from 10-4, when we will have projects ready to go each week. We welcome your help with cleaning, filing, data entry, re-housing photographs and storage room organization.
Please let us know when you'd like to help by contacting us or call 978-922-1186.
Typical assignments include the following:
Beverly Historical Society annual reports - scan early annual reports as pdfs to make them easily searchable
Diary Transcriptions - transcribe diaries in the collection (on-going)
Organize the files of the Balch Family Association
Assist in organization of storage rooms and assemble shelves
Convert large scans to smaller jpegs for cataloging purposes
Create an inventory of our oversized documents (primarily maps)
