ASK A GENEALOGIST!
“Ask the Genealogist” is being offered by the St. Albert Public Library Genealogy Club during the COVID-19 pandemic, in support of the closure of St. Albert Public Library.   The Genealogy Club normally meets at SAPL every month and their goal is to support genealogists during this time of isolation.
