coordinator's main duties include answering email requests for research
assistance, providing newly transcribed information, and maintaining the
site, mostly through minimizing broken links. The IAGenWeb Project
prefers coordinator volunteers who have at a least basic knowledge of
how to create web pages, either by writing their own code or using web
design software, but this is not required to apply.
