Data Projects

Over a 40-year span, Alberta Family Histories Society has created numerous data collections – cemetery records, newspaper extractions, military nominal rolls and other data projects. The cemetery records are being uploaded to our new searchable website, Alberta Ancestors. Our project to index the birth, marriage and death notices in Calgary newspapers is ongoing. If you would like our team to do a search of our databases, please see our Research Assistance page.
