The Grande Prairie Branch of the Alberta Genealogical Society nominates Jay Sydoruk for Tim Hortons Volunteers of the Week!
They wrote ‘Although a member for 6 short years, Jay has made considerable contributions to the Branch. He has been our computer go to guy. Jay is very knowledgeable in issues to do with computers and has been responsible for the upkeep, repair, and replacement of the computers in the Branch.
Along with being a faithful attendee at Branch meetings and functions, Jay has been a member of the Branch Executive Committee for the past 3 years. He has also filled in as a representative of the Branch President at Provincial Board meetings.
One of Jay’s most significant contributions is his knowledge and skill in the area of genealogical research. As one of our “genies” he has been available on a regular basis, to Branch members and the public in general, to help and guide the search for ancestors. While very knowledgeable about Genealogical research in general, he is particularly skilled in helping people trace their Ukrainian ancestry. Jay has also been a part of numerous forays into outlying communities to help people with searches for ancestors and to help them become confident and competent in searching on their own.
All in all, Jay has been willing to take on tasks on behalf of the Branch. He is a smart and capable young man.’
