Our Branch is Still Here, In Spite of COVID!
The Southeast & Winnipeg Branch has adapted to the changing situation throughout the pandemic.
We continue to provide Monday Night Genealogy! through the magic of Zoom meetings. While not the same as in-person meetings, the technology has been welcome … particularly on cold winter evenings. And we have enjoyed meeting Branch members who live too far to commute to in-person meetings.
We have a full program for Monday Night Genealogy! through to June. Check out our schedule to see what is coming.
We always look to welcome members to participate in our Branch, at the Executive level, but also through numerous other opportunities. Check out ways you might be able to help. We work, of course, but have lots of fun along the way!
We look forward to the day when ‘we’ll meet again’, in person, but until then, let’s catch up with each other on Zoom!
