Over the past 25 years, the Kingston Historical Society has accumulated a good collection of artifacts related to the village of Kingston, NJ. Over the years the way we share artifacts and stories has changed. It’s time to update our archives, archive new information, collect new stories and reinvigorate the Society.
The form below is a way to show interest in volunteering. So far we have identifed two areas that need work, and recognize that there are many other areas that can be addressed if we have people to form a team. If any of this sounds good to you, please fill out the form below.
Kingston Archivist Team (KAT)
The archivist team has a daunting task. In years past KHS had a good number of items archived, using technology from 20 years ago. The all-volunteer team has the task of determining appropriate modern ways to archive materials for display and preservation.
We are currently meeting at the Kingston Locktenders House to go through our backlog and collect new materials. Adults are welcome as well as interested teens with supervision.
Kingston Area Volunteer Webmasters Roundtable (Webmaster’s Roundtable)
We hope to form a group for volunteers who maintain local, non-commercial websites. The goal of this inter-organization group is to encourage sharing and appreciation of what each organization is doing with their website and to provide a community of support. Local churches, non-profits, friends organizations and other Kingston NJ area groups with all-volunteer web presences are welcome.
It will not be a sales opportunity.
We will meet several times a year via Zoom, but may gather in person now and then. Adults are welcome as well as interested teens with supervision.
