Survey Field Books
Series · 1873-2015

This series consists of Survey Field Books – both official and non-official

The official field books (FB) contain survey observations used to create original Township surveys, settlements and townsites in Alberta beginning in January 1872. The official field books are actual field observations recording survey work done by Dominion Land Surveyors (DLS) or Dominion Topographical Surveyors (DTS) up to approximately 1930. After 1930, the Government of Canada transferred the responsibility of surveying public lands to Alberta. Since that date Alberta Land Surveyors (ALS) were given the task of performing official surveys. Since 1872 to the present-day official surveys are performed under instructions issued by either the Surveyor General or the Director of Surveys. These FBs contain more than just survey measurements but soil conditions, water availability/type, early structures (ex. fences, homes), game, fish, timber, oil, minerals, and other related features.

The series also contains non-official surveys. These surveys were completed for specific purposes that were different from official surveys. For example, surveys used in the creating of transportation infrastructure (ex. roads and bridges) were not considered the official surveys of the province.

The records include field books used to define surveys such as subdivision surveys, lot surveys, construction surveys, topographic surveys, hydrographic surveys, and road surveys. Additionally, the series includes one album of photographs illustrating a report to the Deputy Minister of the Interior in regard to the Easterly and Northernly Boundaries of Rocky Mountains Park, Jasper Park and Jasper Park extension (GR1997.0341 - 1927).

Alberta. Lands and Mines. Technical Division
Series · 1873-2015

The series consists of original township plans or surveys, subdivision plans, survey diagrams, township registers, and related maps and settlement plans.

Official Township survey plans are the result of official surveys conducted as early as January 1873 and still occur today. In 1871, the first of 3 Dominion Land surveys in the prairie provinces began west of the first meridian in Manitoba, followed by surveys in 1880 and 1881. The surveyors worked on the principles of astronomy and divided the province of Alberta into a grid system composed of ranges, townships, and meridians. Ranges number approximately 1-30 running East to West from each of the three meridians, the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth while the townships (1-127) run from North to South from the International Boundary to the Northwest Territories. These plans became official if they were approved and confirmed by the Surveyor General or after 1930 by the Director of Surveys. For each township, it is possible to have numerous editions. It was the policy of the Office of the Surveyor General to create a new edition every time additional survey work was done, corrections made or updates to standard changes adopted. The scale on the maps is described in terms of chains, where 100 links = 1 chain, 1 chain = 66 feet.

Copies of these township plans were then used as a visual indexing tool for creation of homestead leases, dispositions, and other uses of the land. It allowed a government to draw the area of land and identity of the entity who leases, purchases, or otherwise makes use of the land. These were often part of large ledgers or registers that became part of this series.
