Volunteering To Host A Vermont LHN County
1. Providing raw data on a specific County. Any information you want to provide: Census, Cemeteries, Marriages, Deaths, Histories, Biographies, etc. We hope to eventually have complete data for each County, but by beginning with the documents you already have it's a great start. Every little bit helps someone!
2. Include a History of your County. Let visitors know what your County was all about. You can include photographs, biographies, public officials from the past. There are many things that can be included under this subject.
3. Linking other pages that pertain to your County, by request or permission. Any homepage linked should pertain to your County, and should contain genealogical and/or historical content, which includes surnames. If someone is unable to make a web page of their own, and donates their records for use on your County pages, you are responsible to place that information online, giving copyright to the person who submitted the material.
4. You need to provide a link to the main ALHN Vermont Page and the surrounding Counties that are online, on your main page. Your main page must include the ALHN Logo of your choice. You are free to do your page in any manner you like, as long as the above is followed. It is your choice as to whether you add surnames and queries, libraries and societies, etc. You may want to ask your visitors what they prefer and what they'd like to see.
"Can I adopt a Town or Township instead of a County?"
YES! If covering an entire County is difficult for you because of time and resources, adopting a town in that County is a great idea. We're happy to have volunteers at a County level. We would be happy to have volunteers who prefer to cover a topic in a township too, such as religion, history, cemeteries, occupations, etc. We can easily link your page to the County it falls under. Many researchers have a great knowledge of the specific area their ancestors lived in. This is a wonderful way to help. Just email us and let us know what area you would be interested in covering and we'll get you added.
"I am unable to adopt a County.Are there other ways I can help?"
you would like to volunteer to do any of the following, we'd love to have
you on our team. By submitting the data you have collected in your research,
or placing it online for linking, you can be a huge help to others who
may be researching the same families or the same areas. You can submit
information to the State host or your County host.
"Where do I place my pages? Does it cost me anything?"
"Who owns this data?"
