Manitoba Genealogical Society Cancels Sesquicentennial Event

Following the resignation of several members of the Manitoba Genealogy Society (MGS) Executive, the Society announced the appointment of an Interim Executive and the cancellation of their 2020 Conference scheduled for June 12-14, 2020. 
This is particularly unfortunate as 2020 marks the 150th anniversary of the admission of Manitoba as Canada's fifth province. MGS will be announcing participation in another heritage event to celebrate Manitoba’s sesquicentennial. 
The future of the proposed Manitoba First Families project which, in conjunction with the conference, was to offer a certificate of recognition to descendants of original and/or early pioneers in what makes up present-day Manitoba, is unclear.
