Dear members,

Due to the continued concern over Covid-19 and the recent spike of cases in Manitoba we are erring on the side of caution by continuing to postpone our monthly meetings.

The EEGS Executive and Council members continue to work behind the scenes and are available to assist you if you have any questions or need any advice to further advance your research.

We look forward to resuming our monthly meetings as soon as it is safer to do so. In the meantime, keep well everyone.

The roots of the East European Genealogical Society Inc. began in 1989, when an informal group of researchers with varied interests in East European family history and genealogy met on a monthly basis. The researchers felt a need to develop and share genealogical knowledge about eastern Europe. The group became the East European Branch of the Manitoba Genealogical Society and held its first meeting on January 16, 1990. The East European Branch grew steadily over the next 6 years. As a result, the East European Genealogical Society Inc. was formed and held its first official meeting on March 13, 1996. The East European Genealogical Society assumed the activities previously offered by the East European Branch. For a complete and detailed Timeline of the Society: EEGS TIMELINE
