“Archives Week presents the perfect opportunity to discover these invaluable records, get to know the people who work diligently to collect and preserve them, and educate Albertans on how to preserve their family records.

“The Archives captures the stories, lives and memories of the past for future generations.  I encourage anyone with an interest in archival materials to follow the Provincial Archives of Alberta on Facebook to learn more. If you are in Edmonton, I encourage a visit to the facility to get a glimpse of the millions of records. Perhaps you might find something fascinating you never knew before!”
