We have three themed events for you to come out and learn more about your family history in Manitoba and beyond. Please know that young or old, individually or with a family member, you are welcome to visit on any of our three days.
Genealogy is often an adult pastime, but we welcome parents and grandparents to bring a child to come fill out a family tree chart with them on any of our three days.
You will get:
* one free pedigree chart per family group
* free research assistance by our volunteer members
*free access to our online databases and resource library holdings
We ask all visitors to book a time when they are planning to come to the MGS Library Resource Centre. We are currently limited to 5 family groups at a time and ask that you limit your visit to 2 hours. This will allow our volunteers to better assist you in finding out more about your family tree.
When you register, please register only ONE ticket for your family group.
