      1:00 pm The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village and its programs

      This introductory section will provide a brief overview on the latest developments at the

      Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, which will be useful in understanding how the

      are linked to this open-air museum east of Edmonton.

       

      1:20 pm The Centenary Pioneer Recognition Program

      preserve family history experiences in east central Alberta, and will inform potential

      applicants how to prepare their submission.

       

      1:45 pm A series of “how to” presentations to help illustrate how historical

      documents and photographs can help provide insight on a family’s

      history:

      I. Homestead applications: what they tell you about your family’s early

      settlement experience

      II. Historical photographs: what are some lesser known clues that a

      photograph can provide about a family’s history

      III. Census records: what ethnographic information can be extracted from

      a census page

      IV. Passport: the wealth of information found on travel documents

      in Alberta.
