Let us help you fill out your genealogy tree and let our research assistant volunteers guide you to get started.

We have themed events for you to come out and learn more about family history in Manitoba and beyond. Please know that young or old, individually or with a family member are welcome to visit on any of our three days.

Genealogy is often an adult pastime, but parents or grandparents can bring a child to come out a family tree chart with them.

We'll give you:

*One free pedigree chart per family group & some smaller family charts if needed

*Free research assistance by our volunteer members

We ask all visitors to book a time when they are planning to come if possible, from either 10 - noon or noon - 2.

Although our events are free, we ask you to register by emailing us at: [email protected]
