UPDATE – TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES – MGS RESOURCE CENTRE

We have an update regarding the Manitoba Genealogical Society Resource Centre in-house computer network. As at late this afternoon the computer network is now up and running. The MGS Resource Centre will be open during regular posted summer hours next week Tuesday, July 23rd.

Thank you MGS members, volunteers and visitors for your patience during this time!

UPDATE – TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES – MGS RESOURCE CENTRE

The Manitoba Genealogical Society Resource Centre continues to experience technical difficulty with the in-house network server, as a result of the severe weather experienced earlier this week. This has not affected the MANI server and MANI is still accessible on line to MGS members. Therefore due to the technical difficulties in-house, the MGS Resource Centre will be closed on Thursday, July 18, 2019. We will continue to work on resolving this issue. The Resource Centre will reopen on July 23rd during regularly posted hours.

Thank you for your patience.

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES – MGS IN-HOUSE RESOURCE CENTRE

As you know, Winnipeg has experienced rather active weather over the past few days. This resulted in a number of power outages throughout the Winnipeg region. Power was lost to the MGS Resource Centre as well. This has caused difficulties within our network server in-house. We are currently working on a solution. If you were planning to visit the centre this week, I would recommend calling us before you set out. You can reach us by calling 204-783-9139.

Thank you for your patience.
