History

The Alberta Genealogical Society (AGS) was founded in 1973 as a non-profit organization to encourage and promote the study of family history in Alberta. The AGS aids genealogical research in the province through direct consultation with researchers, newsletters and occasional publications, providing information including listings of cemeteries in Alberta, and serving as a lobby group for genealogical interests on issues important to the community. The AGS is divided into 11 regional branches based in Brooks, Camrose, Drayton Valley, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Peace River, Red Deer, and Wetaskiwin. Each branch provides information concerning the resources available in the area concerning access and holdings of local repositories. Membership in the parent society is a requirement for membership in a branch. The president of each branch represents the branch at AGS meetings. Meetings are presided over by an elected executive council consisting of the President, Past President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Vice President Finance and Secretary.
