We’re looking for a few work-from-home volunteers to help us prepare information for posting on our Historical Timeline. The task requires reading through Lieutenant Colonel W. T. Barnard’s The Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada, 19860-1960: One hundred years of Canada to find “significant events” that we haven’t yet posted to our timelines listed below:
- Timeline: 1856-1899 (much of this has already been done but still needs a re-check)
- Timeline: 1900-1924
- Timeline: 1925-1949
- Timeline: 1950-1974 (only a small portion of this period is covered by Barnard’s book)
- Timeline: Uniforms
- Timeline: Weapons
Note that we have two “specialty” timelines for uniforms and weapons which we’re also trying to populate.
Information can be submitted in the body of an email or in a WORD attachment and each date/event (following the format already being used including a  at the end of each entry as the reference to this source). Research should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org directly.
If you’re interested in assisting with this project, you can indicate below which time period you would like to research (it can be a portion of the periods shown above) and we’ll confirm with you before you start just some we don’t end up with any overlap. Questions can also be posted in the comments below!
Thanks in advance!
