The Alberta Women’s Memory Project recognizes that who and what is remembered depends on the materials that are preserved and available to researchers. Whether you are a student researching your first history project, someone interested in finding out more about your mother or grandmother, part of a local history project, a teacher or scholar, the work begins with archives. Contact them if you would like to know more about collecting and preserving family or organizational papers and photos, if you have a memoir or collection we might publish, or to share your experiences of researching and writing about women in Alberta.
