CREATOR: Alberta Genealogical Society - Maurice Legres
DATE RANGE: 1885; 1959-1990
EXTENT: 1.00 m of textual records

The Alberta Genealogical Society (AGS) was founded in 1973 as a non-profit organization to encourage and promote the study of family history in Alberta. The AGS aids genealogical research in the province through direct consultation with researchers, newsletters and occasional publications, providing information including listings of cemeteries in Alberta, and serving as a lobby group for genealogical interests on issues important to the community.

The AGS is divided into 11 regional branches based in Brooks, Camrose, Drayton Valley, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Peace River, Red Deer, and Wetaskiwin. Each branch provides information to members on the resources available in the area concerning access and holdings of local repositories. Membership in the parent society is a requirement for membership in a branch. The president of each branch represents their branch at AGS meetings. Meetings are presided over by an elected executive council consisting of the President, Past President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Vice President Finance and Secretary.

SCOPE AND CONTENT: The series was collected by the AGS and dates from 1885 to 1990. The series consists of a scrapbook donated to the society by G.W.E. Bill Smith; an Edmonton Bulletin from 1885; and clippings from the Edmonton Journal (1960-1990) and the Leduc Representative (1973-1975, 1989) on matters interesting to genealogists.
