Coaching Program at Calgary Public Library
Alberta Family Histories Society partners with the Calgary Public Library to offer a coaching program. In the fall of 2022, it will be held on Saturday, September 24, Saturday, October 22 and Saturday, December 3 from 1 to 3 pm. Experienced library staff and AFHS volunteers will be available to provide one-on-one consultation on any aspect of genealogy or family history from getting started to busting those brick walls.
Occasionally we organize trips to places such as the Provincial Archives in Edmonton or other places. Watch our website and newsletter for upcoming research trips.
Every summer we have a picnic to kick off the new season. It’s a great way to meet other members.
