Message from the Drayton Valley Branch of the Albert Genealogical Society:

The Drayton Valley Branch of the Alberta Genealogical Society is excited and appreciative of our collaboration with the Drayton Valley Municipal Library, and look forward to accessing FamilySearch records through the Affiliated Library.  Our general meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. with the exception of July, August and December.  Our resources include genealogy books which are included in the section on genealogy and filed amongst the Library's genealogical resources.  We also have obituaries for Drayton Valley and surrounding area from 2004 onward as well as an index on Drayton Valley's births, deaths and marriages from 1954 - 2004.   Genealogy for Youth resources are included in our holdings which we hope to implement into our programming.  Members are willing to assist anyone wanting help searching their own family tree.  Some of these searches have assisted us in learning more about our area.
