|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
