Pioneer Profiles

Search our Site

The SAPD can provide additional information regarding many of the names in this set of webpages. As the organization name implies, the lineage of these pioneers still reside in Southern Alberta and may be just the family link you are looking for. You can also browse our Additional Profiles online now (August 2004)! Or, you can use the search tool to the right.

Much of the information in this set of webpages has been obtained from our own archives which consist of 55, 3-4" binders plus additional files. The SAPD members, in many cases, have written their own histories which may be two or three lines or ten to twelve pages. In addition the organization has a library which may be accessed by readers. This consists of western histories and community books which have been published by many districts in recent years and have provided such a wealth of information. We have also benefited from the assistance of the Glenbow Museum Archives.

This portion of the SAPD website is based on the 1993 publication, Pioneer Families of Southern Alberta produced under the direction of the Historical Book Coordinator, Jacob Lionel (Jay) Joffe and the History Committee at that time.

The members of the historical committee were:

  • Lavina (Vi) J. Baskill
  • George H. Coulson
  • Calrence A. Davis
  • Joan G. Davis
  • Flora Eagelson
  • James T. Eagelson
  • M. Magdalena (Madge) Grayson
  • Gwendolyne (Gwen) E. Hanna
  • Sheilagh S. Jameson
  • Barbara Z. Joffe
  • L. Ralphine Locke
  • Mary L. Lynas
  • James A.N. Mackie, Q.C.
  • Maureen E. Peckham
  • Lucille H. Togstad
  • Theodore (Ted) Togstad)

The transformation of the book materials into an Internet-accessible format has been made possible by a fine collaboration with volunteers from the Alberta Family Histories Society and the SAPD. Thanks are owed to Eva Kinnear and Judith Rempel at the AFHS and to Jim Mackie and the rest of the Historical Committee of SAPD.
