Introduction

Edmonton became a Branch of the Alberta Genealogical Society (AGS) in March 1974.  Our members have been preserving, researching, and publishing their own family histories and that of our province’s families ever since!

Membership with AGS and Edmonton Branch allows access to our library holdings which include reference sources, periodicals, books, microfiche, microfilm and CD’s.

Members are invited to participate in Special Interest Groups who meet to share knowledge, resources and to help solve ‘genealogical road blocks’ relating to a specific country.

Branch general meetings are open to members and non-members. Programs presented are of general interest to genealogists, from beginners to advanced.

Membership Information

There are ten Branches throughout Alberta. Edmonton Branch has about 425 members. Detailed membership information at AGS Membership Information.
