DNA and Genealogy
Can DNA testing help solve a family mystery? Bill Curtis of the Manitoba Genealogical Society will give you a basic understanding of what DNA testing is, what kinds of DNA tests are available, and what they can and cannot tell you. He will cover topics such as finding living relatives today, and how far back you might be able to trace your family. Bill Curtis has been a member of the Manitoba Genealogical Society since 1994 and is the present Education and Outreach Coordinator.
Public Program Registration Guidelines
All program rooms have a maximum capacity to ensure safety. We reserve the right to limit the number of program attendees.
An email address is required for public online self-registration. If you do not have an email address, you can register by calling the branch at the phone number provided, or by visiting any Winnipeg Public Library branch in person.
For Family programs, please only register the children who will be attending. Parents/Caregivers who will be attending with their children can be noted in the "Notes" field of the child's registration, but do not need to submit a registration of their own.
For programs with children ages 11 and younger, a parent or caregiver must remain in the library during the program.
If you are interested in registering more than 5 people for a program, please contact staff.
