HSGPV at the AGS Conference in April 2019! Our new display panels generated a lot of interest in our society. Our volunteers had many meaningful conversations with visitors about Volhynia’s history!

Set aside your weekend of 26-28 April 2019, as the Alberta Genealogical Society (AGS) will host another provincial conference celebrating the human story — Images Through Time. Every person has a unique narrative built on experiences that shaped who they are. Come join us and enjoy an exhilarating three-days as speakers instill the ability within us to reminisce, discover lost lives and preserve forgotten histories.
With approximately 300-plus attendees from across Western Canada and Northwestern U.S., learn about emerging technology, social media, DNA, enhancing research techniques and more. Join us for a special event in sealing our 2019-time capsule. The Society wants to commemorate their history, types of resources and technology we experience today in compiling genealogy. The time capsule will inform people twenty-five years into the future something about our Society and genealogical research in 2019 Alberta. Think about what represents your life today and submit it along with the small submission form to the AGS Conference Committee by 10 April 2019 and add a piece of your memories to our capsule. The item should be no larger than letter-size paper, non-perishable and non-liquid.
The 2019 AGS Images Through Time Marketplace will be in the Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre, Grand Boardroom. Our vendor area will be open on Saturday and Sunday starting at 8:00am without charge to attendees and the public. Books, gadgets n’gizmos, talks, giveaways, demonstrations, with free Wi-Fi and much more, make for a vibrant and fun environment to showcase your goods and services.
