Research Assistance

“I’m looking for my ancestor’s obituary or burial information.”
“I would like to find out more about an ancestor who lived in or near Calgary.”
“Where can I find military information for a WWI soldier from southern Alberta?”


If you have similar questions, our Research Team is eager to find answers! Our volunteers can assist with family history research for the city of Calgary, the surrounding districts, and the western half of southern Alberta (Crowsnest Pass). Our focus is regional.

If queries are general in nature or you do not know the research area, the Research Team may suggest other societies or repositories to contact.


Send your queries to or direct your request to the mailing address shown at the bottom of the page. Please include your email address should clarification be required.

Before sending out requested information, a researcher will evaluate the query and will get in contact to tell you the amount to remit. Research results will follow shortly after payment is received.


See the fee rates in Canadian funds, as a guide, below.


Once the amount has been determined, payment may be made by a mail-in cheque or by online credit card transaction, through our secure payment gateway. Just click on the Queries Payment button below.
