Update: Quarterly Staff

The Indiana Genealogical Society's quarterly publication, Indiana Genealogist, has filled the Editorial Assistant positions but is still looking for someone to take over as Editor. The Editor is responsible for putting together and shaping the 4 issues each year, choosing which of the various submissions (articles, indexes, record abstracts, etc.) to include, and also for contacting various repositories and organizations about contributing either an article or record abstracts. There is also an index issue published early the next year (the index is compiled by one of the Editorial Assistants).

The Editor position is not paid but your expenses (such as software, ink cartridges and postage) are reimbursed. Ability to meet printing deadlines is a must; familiarity with using Microsoft Publisher and creating PDF files with Adobe Acrobat is recommended. The time commitment is 20-25 hours per issue (less for the index issue).

A sample issue of the quarterly can be viewed at
