Monthly program


Location: River Park Church,
3818 - 14A Street SW (map)
Next Meeting: Monday, Feb. 1,

7-9 p.m.
Speaker: David Love
Topic: Military Records & Memorabilia


If you are researching an ancestor with a military background, if you are in possession of a piece of military memorabilia or if you are just plain interested in military history, join us on February 1 to hear David Love, from Calgary Military Historical Society.


David is an avid collector of military artefacts and a very knowledgeable historical researcher. His talk will be a brief introduction to military records and the collection of military memorabilia and then he will open the floor to your questions. This is an outstanding opportunity to get expert help on what can be a very complicated topic.
