    Administrative 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 supports 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 Calgary Branch of the AGS was formed in 1974 but disbanded in 1980. Most of the former members of the AGS Calgary branch opted to leave the AGS to form a Calgary branch of the Alberta Family Histories Society.

        General note

        The administrative records of the Calgary Branch of the AGS are included in the AGS fonds. As these materials were donated to the AGS by the Calgary Branch upon disbandment in 1980 and then donated to the Provincial Archives of Alberta by the AGS, a decision was made to include these records within the AGS fonds.
