At Alberta Family Histories Society, we are proud of our publications. Beginning as “the Quarterly” and then known as Chinook, we published an award-winning journal for many years. Unfortunately, due to the challenges of finding a volunteer editor for a journal, we are not currently publishing Chinook. In its place, we offer a shorter newsletter called Chinook Arch.

We are looking for volunteers to help index the articles so that we can add a search function to this page. If you would like to help, contact
