Lest We Forget 2023

Once again, with November creeping upon us, it is time to turn our thoughts to remembering our military family members who gave so much for our freedoms.  All Manitobans are welcome to submit a one page biography of a family member from Manitoba who served in the military.  You can view other biographies here:  https://mbgenealogy.com/category/lest-we-forget-our-family/

There are no deadlines as we always accept biographies for this series on our website, but we hope to have submissions for November.

Send submissions to website@mbgenealogy.com

Submission Criteria:

  • your Manitoba ancestor’s name
  • military conflict and years
  • brief bio (what Manitoba community they came from, what position(s) they held in the military, where they were stationed, any decorations, awards or citations)
  • genealogical identifying information so future generations can identify which family they belong to
  • 50 to 75 words is our suggestion, but if you want to go longer you are welcome to!
  • a photo of the ancestor you are honouring, preferably a military photo

The Manitoba Genealogical Society’s Honouring Our Ancestors Project started with Manitobans Remembered, where we welcome you to write a one page biography about your Manitoba ancestors which is posted on our website and social media.  We are now expanding this project to include Lest We Forget – Our Family to honour those Manitobans who fought for Canadian freedom.
