Please feel free to ask anything at G2G. You will find many nice other volunteers that all love to help you as they still remember how it felt as we/they started here.
We are all volunteers, some just started earlier, but received also a lot of help. I love to pass on all help I got.
I just can hope you find a Project you like, Becoming a member of a Project, as a starter, and in my case I was only two week here as I joined the Dutch Roots Project, helped so much and also made I did not get lost here! :)
Kind regards from The Netherlands.
