                         BACKGROUND INFORMATION
•   The Alberta Ukraine Genealogical Project was established with the signing of a
    Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation between the Province of Alberta
    and the Lviv Oblast state administration in September of 2005 and former
    Premier Ralph Klein’s subsequent trip to Ukraine in June 2006,

•   Part of the impetus for creating this project was the establishment of a
    recognition program at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village in 2003, which
    honours individuals who settled in east central Alberta prior to the First World
    War. In 2005, the recognition program was expanded to include a permanent
    monument.

•   The success of the Centennial Pioneer Recognition Program resulted in an
    obvious growth in popularity and awareness of local and family history research.

•   This increase in queries from Albertans and Ukrainians who were interested in
    learning their pre-emigration family history identified a need to streamline,
    simplify and enhance access to resources in Alberta and in Ukraine.

•   The Alberta-Ukraine Genealogical Project now makes it possible for Albertans
    and Ukrainians to research their family histories, and even find lost relatives, in
    both Canada and Ukraine.

•   Thus far, the Project has undertaken four major initiatives, primarily focused on
    making public and archival records more readily available to its stakeholders and
    retrievable in more user-friendly formats:
       1. Development of new Print and Digital Finding Aids
       2. Centenary Pioneer Recognition Program
       3. Reference and Research Services in Alberta and Ukraine
       4. Documentation of Church Properties in Rural Communities of Alberta

•   The project continues to develop thanks to a very strong level of community
    support – moral, financial, and promotional.

  Pioneers who settled within the boundaries of the UCHV Study Area are eligible to be recognized by the
Centenary Pioneer Recognition Program. The shaded squares represent the homesteads of settlers already
            listed on the Centenary Monument. Visit www.ukrainianvillage.ca for more information.

                                               Research Hints
The Centenary Pioneer Recognition Program recommends the following resources for applicants to use in
locating historical documents and information to include with their submission. Applicants are strongly
encouraged to locate and attach, at minimum, a copy of the ancestor’s application for homestead. This document
verifies the pioneer family’s location and exact date of settlement in east central Alberta, and is the primary
document used by the Centenary Program office to confirm a family’s eligibility in this program.
While applicants are encouraged to obtain their own historical documents and information, those individuals who
do not wish, or are unable, to locate homestead records and/or census records may contact the Alberta
Genealogical Research Office for research assistance (a cost-recovery fee is in effect for these research
services). For more information, please call 780-431-2324 or e-mail AB-Ukraine.Genealogy@gov.ab.ca.
1. Application for Homestead and Homestead Patent Records
Alberta’s homestead files (PAA 1970.313) are available to view/copy at the Provincial Archives of Alberta. The
                                                          th
ancestor’s surname spelling (as recorded in the early 20 century) and/or the homestead legal land description
may be used to identify the homestead file number and reel. Those who wish to identify the file number in
advance of visiting the Provincial Archives of Alberta may call our office for this information, or consult our finding
aid whenever we offer displays at public festivals. *Please note that land title records are separate documents
from homestead records, and will not be accepted by the Centenary Program office to satisfy the program’s
eligibility criteria.
2. Census of Canada records (1901, 1906, 1911, 1916)
Canadian census records are available to view online at the Library and Archives Canada website:
http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/archivianet/index-e.html. Family entries in the
         1901 (http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/census-1901/index-e.html),
         1906 (http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/census-1906/index-e.html),
         1911 (http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/census-1911/index-e.html), and
         1916 (http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/census-1916/index-e.html)
Census of Canada records may be used to determine the family’s year of immigration to Canada, and to confirm
the date and place/ country for each member of the family. It is recommended to search this site using the
attached 1906, 1911, and 1916 finding aids to narrow the scope of search. Digitized versions of the original
census records and limited searches by surname may be found on http://automatedgenealogy.com/index.html.
3. Ship Manifests/ Ship Passenger Lists
Ship passenger lists can be found on Library and Archives Canada website under Passenger Lists, 1865-1922.
These records may be used to confirm the family’s year of immigration to Canada. Searching these records can
be challenging, even if the exact date of arrival and ship name is known.
4. Family History Entries in Local History Books
Local history books were collaborative projects within a community, documenting community (schools, churches,
institutions) and individual family histories. Local history books may be found in the local community’s library
and/or museum and at the Provincial Archives of Alberta. Alternatively, you could contact our office.
5. Birth/ Baptismal/ Marriage Certificates and Passport Records
A limited number of proof of age documents have been deposited at the Provincial Archives of Alberta. Similarly,
limited numbers of church records may be available in local church record depositories. Please contact the
Alberta Genealogical Research Office for more information.
