Monthly program


Location: River Park Church,
3818 - 14A Street SW (map)
Next Meeting: Monday, Jan. 5,

7-9 p.m.
Speaker: TBD
Topic: Alberta Quilt Study Society


A representative of the Alberta Quilt Study Society will give a presentation on quilts and the history and technique of documentation.  She will also speak about her genealogical research on some local signature quilts from the WWI era. 


This will be an interesting program as many of the techniques used to research these heirlooms can apply to documenting and preserving the stories of other heirlooms.

New BMD database records uploaded!


For researchers who use our databases, we have added over 800 new records to our BMD (births, marriages and deaths) database. The new records are from the Calgary Daily Herald from 1904.

You may search the database for FREE from here.


Thanks to all who donated


Many AFHS members who attended the last monthly meeting donated to the Veterans Food Bank. Your generous contributions totalled an impressive $822, which means many more meals will be available to veterans who need them. The people at The Canadian Legacy Project were very pleased to receive the envelope, indeed.


I think it is fitting that we made the donations delivery on "Giving Tuesday," too.
