The Northern Alberta Pioneers and Old Timers’ Association dates back to 1894. Over the years they collected historical information and artifacts from Edmonton’s early settlers and eventually turned this collection over to the City of Edmonton where it formed the nucleus of the City Archives and the historical Fort Edmonton site. The writing of biographies of members and their families continued and a two volume publication was the result. These books are available at the City of Edmonton Archives and the Legislative Library. Additional information has been collected and indexes are continually being updated to included new material.
