Monthly program


Location: River Park Church,
3818 - 14A Street SW (map)
Next Meeting: Monday, Sep. 12,

7-9 p.m.
Speaker: AFHS Members
Topic: Your Society


Join us to learn about all of the fabulous resources and wonderful people available to you through our Society. This meeting, as all of our meetings are, is open to anyone with an interest in genealogy or history. It's a great way to get started and meet others that share your passion.


Coming in October!


Speaker: Jim Benedict

Topic: Where Did All the Family Records Go?


Jim has graciously agreed to reprise his presentation from Historic Calgary Week, as there were many people who were unable to get seats at the original presentation. We will find out about organizational and storage methods to insure that all of our hard work is not lost. An excellent introduction to the nuts and bolts of genealogy for the beginner, it is also a wake-up call for the more experienced genealogists among us. A not-to-be-missed presentation. This would be a great meeting for you to bring a friend or relative that is thinking about getting started in genealogy.
