Visit the Provincial Archives
The homestead files can be viewed in the Sandra Thomson Reading Room of the Provincial Archives of Alberta. After finding film and file numbers from the Homestead Index the researcher has easy access to all files of interest. Microfilm readers and printers, and photocopying services are available.

NOTE: In most cases, files on microfilm are in numerical order. However the researcher should be aware that it may not always be the case. Consulting the inventory list inserted in each reel box can often help locate out-of-order files.
