MGS Annual Open House
The MGS annual Open House will once again be held in conjunction with MB Culture Days from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. We will benefit from the advertising on the Culture Day web-site (http://culturedays.ca/en/2015-activities/view/55c26c25-92f4-495f-8120-60854c4a89be and the printed program which is published in mid-September. Discover your past! Join MGS in exploring “genealogy” and family history. For beginners, our interactive Open House will introduce you to genealogy and will provide: assistance to begin your family search, a tour of our Library/Resource Center, and activities for children. For current genealogists we will have an introduction to our new online database MANI with 1.5 million records of Manitoba names. We will also have a “problem corner” to help solve roadblocks in your family search. Join us for a look back into your own family history.
