Alberta Genealogy Research

On a trip to the Provincial Archives of Alberta (PAA) in Edmonton, I met Shannon who is an enthusiastic genealogist and who also provides genealogy research for customers. 

Here are some highlights from their website:

Obituary indexes 
  • Edmonton Journal from 1950-current  - Shannon 
  • Calgary Herald 1950 - current
Newspapers: 
They index newspapers for BMDs, articles and lots of other types of information.
  • Birth Announcements from various Alberta newspapers pre 1930.
  • Edmonton Journal 1903-1909  - Shannon
  • Edmonton 1934-2001 (1940-44 Some part years) (1945-49 Not indexed)  - Shannon
  • Calgary & Edmonton 1900-1938  -  Ted
  • Edmonton 1907 (Finding Guide) - Ted
  • Vancouver Sun Jan 1930 – Jun 1936  - Ted
