Society Volunteers


Volunteers at an Edwin Washington Event.

The Edwin Washington Society  is a non-profit 501(c)(3) thus must keep our costs as low as possible. Please volunteer.  As an example, this site was first developed by a volunteer in 2015, Jess Oxley Hood, a former Union organizer.

The strategic policy goals for projects is agreed on by the Board of Directors.  Volunteers are hired and supervised by the President of DFV.  We especially need volunteers in the following areas:

  • Archaeologists.
  • Cataloging
  • Editors
  • Media interaction
  • Preservation
  • Scanning
  • Writers
Scanning is done in a way to minimize physical risks to documents.
Volunteers are local residents like Dave Prebish on the left, who manages research on Petitions, and a German High School student on the right, whose assistance was provided by the Marshall Center in Leesburg. For privacy reasons, the high school student’s name is not given. Computers are owned by the Society.
