MGS and COVID-19

The Province of Manitoba has loosened restrictions regarding COVID and related variants. However, recommendations for precautions continue to be encouraged.

The MGS Resource Centre has reopened Tuesdays to Thursdays. Mask requirement for visitors is optional, except when unable to maintain adequate distance between visitors and volunteers, in consideration for the well-being of our volunteers and visitors.

Our volunteers continue to work from home and within the Resource Centre on the many MGS projects, researching, indexing, writing, and creating new content to be added to MANI, for a revamp of our website and providing research services for our clients.

For our members, many services continue both remotely and within the Resource Centre, including access for researching through MANI and our KOHA catalogue.

Together we understand how your family history is a healthy, calming, fascinating outlet of discovery in our lives, now more than ever. Our dedicated volunteers have contributed thousands of hours to create research resources for your genealogical benefit.

While we are able to safely convene with less restrictions, MGS continues to monitor the COVID situation in Winnipeg.
Manitoba Genealogical Society (MGS) is a provincial charitable organization celebrating over 40 years, contributing to family history services and our valuable heritage community.

Your support is appreciated. Please consider making a donation to help support this work.
