Genealogical Research


Effective June 26th, 2020 due to reduced staff, the Archives can accept only genealogical requests for ID or treaty and status purposes. We will be evaluating this service and will provide updates when available.

The Archives will complete searches for genealogical purposes with the following conditions:

  • Search requests for genealogical purposes completed by the Archives will be charged a non-refundable fee of $50 per request regardless of whether or not the search proves successful.
  • In order to comply with the Personal Information Protection Act of Alberta (PIPA), the Archives will only release information contained in records which have been in existence for over 100 years, or information about a person who has been deceased 50 years or more, or with written authorization from the individual.

To request a Baptism, Marriage or Burial certificate, please complete the linked form and mail it or fax to The Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton along with the $50 search fee. 

Please make cheques payable to: The Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton.

While we endeavour to respond to requests as quickly as possible, please allow a minimum of three weeks for your request to be processed. Your request will not be processed until payment has been received.
