Q is for Quality Services Posted 20 April 2017 by Peggy Chapman Under the resources tab on the menu bar of the website, (you must be logged in), click on Guild Services and find a list of member services, some of which have been covered. But did you know about the Newswatch Project, Mentoring, WARP, Awards of Excellence and many more. Let’s look at a few and see what you might be missing: Mentoring is often what can make the difference between a satisfying experience and a frustrating one. No matter what your challenge is, there may be a member who can help you through it. All you need to do is ask. Newswatch Project refers to other members giving a bit of their time to review their local newspaper for Guild surnames. This is an excellent way to get hard-to-find information from across the world. Check the list of locations and newspapers. Awards of Excellence is what is sounds like. Click on this and see a range of awards that have been given to members for excellence in areas such as, articles, websites, books, blogs completed by Guild members. I like this site because I can access examples of good research and one-name study methods. RAOGK stands for Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness, a behaviour that seems to come naturally to most family historians, and the Guild is no different. Once logged in, there is a table of Offers and Requests. The requests lag behind the offers so don’t overlook these helping hands. WARP is an acronym for Warning, Advice and Reporting point. What is that you ask? This is a service that focuses on computer and Internet security alerts related to your email alias and other Guild technology. All you need to do is subscribe and if anything does become a concern, you will be in the know.
