Gressenhall Museum are looking for Family History Volunteers

More Than Oliver Twist Family History Volunteers

Volunteers needed! We would love to hear from you if you would be interested in researching the lives of people who lived here in the workhouse at Gressenhall; this is part of the More Than Oliver Twist project! This role requires candidates to have access to family history research databases from home and the relevant skills to carry out this research. Please get in touch via: gressenhall.museum@norfolk.gov.uk  quoting MTOT Family History Volunteer.

Workhouse Archive Volunteers

Volunteers needed! We would like to hear from you if you are interested in history and learning more about the union workhouse system. Volunteers are required to help catalogue workhouse archives. This role requires online access, an ability to read curly old writing and to use image and word processing packages. To find out more please contact: gressenhall.museum@norfolk.gov.uk quoting Workhouse Archive Volunteer.

Gressenhall Museum are currently experiencing high levels of demand for these volunteering opportunities. In order to support all of our volunteers effectively and fairly, we may need to limit the total number of volunteers we can work with.
