Alberta Land and Property Records
Homestead registers for Alberta from about 1885 to 1930 are available on microfilm at the Provincial Archives and online at:
The records are arranged by land location. There is an index to these records. The township registers list the name of the applicant, the application date, and the date the patent was granted. There are related files which contain actual applications for homestead and give the name, marital status, citizenship, and previous residence of applicants and the number of ages of their family members.
Maps of municipal districts and counties which show the land owners’ names can also be found at the Provincial Archives.
