Who we are looking for:
Someone who likes to add people (servicemen, civilians) wo were decorated during either WW1 or WW2. Preferably with their photo and biographical details from a variety of sources.

Work:
You are free to start with your own field of interest (servicemen from a country or decorations). You enter these in our system and thus showing on our website TracesofWar -. We have a small team with colleagues from The Netherlands, Germany and Spain who sacrifice a little of their spare time for our unique website. Together we are keen on becoming a source of its own on the internet.
At first you will be guided by more experienced editors, but if everything goes well you will soon be on your own feet. Of course there is always the possibility of getting help, via e-mail, Facebook or forums.

Please note: all activities are performed on a voluntary basis. There is no minimum and no maximum investment in time.

Many of the decorations on TracesOfWar lack a description or a good description. We are looking for volunteers that are interested in making these descriptions with the help of sources from the internet and out of books.All you need to do is provide us with the description and a list of sources. Other volunteers in the team will provide the translation in Dutch and add it to the website.
Are you interested, let us know.

When you are interested in doing other work to the website or want to be able to add your description yourself, after some training that is also possible.
Who we are looking for:
Someone who likes to answer and process e-mails coming in from the TracesOfWar website.

Activities:
You go to work within Gmail with the e-mails that come in, for all the different departments we have (Sights, People & Awards, Articles, News). What comes in are press releases of events, questions about our website or related topics ("Do you have more information about my family member?"), Feedback on our website ("There is not only a tank here, but also a cannon!") and new additions ("You do not have this person / location yet!"). In addition, many other types of mails, which you automatically find out.

For this work it is handy that you communicate smoothly by e-mail, you can get along with photo editing tools and you can at least give a reaction in Dutch and English.

In the first instance you will be helped by more experienced e-mail editors, but if everything goes well, you will soon be on your own feet. Of course there is always the possibility of help and assistance, via e-mail, Facebook or forums.

Note: all activities are performed on a voluntary basis.

Who we are looking for:
Someone who likes to write short informative pieces and likes to process accompanying photos of war-related sights. Think of the First and Second World War, but other wars are possible (whatever you prefer!).

Work:
You start with your own material (photos), what you find in reliable sources on the internet or in books / newspapers or with reliable information that others have sent you. You process these in existing or new locations, also called sights, on our website. That goes from very large like war museums or concentration camps to the smallest monuments or Stumbling stones!

At first you will be accompanied by more experienced editors, but if everything goes well you will soon be on your own feet. Of course there is always the possibility of getting help, via e-mail, Facebook or forums.

Please note: all activities are performed on a voluntary basis.
