The stories of our predecessors add some personality to the grave markers found in our cemeteries.  Enjoy reading about some of our pioneers, our notable and notorious people, or just some visitors to Calgary who ended up staying here beyond their lifetimes.



The Alberta Family Histories Society is a nonprofit association of family genealogists who want to share their research with the world.  Starting in 1980, the AFHS has collected cemetery records and images, B/M/D indexes and obituaries.  This Alberta Ancestors website is our portal into that repository of family history.
