East European Genealogical Society Presentation

“Lesser-known Resources to Determine your Ancestral Village”
by Chris Bukoski. Wed., September 20, 7:00 pm. Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway Ave., Winnipeg.
Chris will discuss lesser-known resources that could be used to identify your ancestral village, as well as provide the location of these records. Many times the village names are distorted; how to determine the proper spelling will be addressed. A critical piece of the puzzle is finding the parish name and Chris will discuss gazetteers and other sources that will aid in this process.

DNA and Genealogy
Saturday, September 23: 2-4 pm

Can DNA testing help solve a family mystery, and if so, how? Bill Curtis of the Manitoba Genealogical Society will give you a basic understanding of DNA testing. The session will explain what kinds of DNA tests are available, and what they can and cannot tell you. It will cover topics such as finding living relatives today, and how far back you might be able to trace your family.
