Welcome to our new website! Please be patient–not all of the links may be active yet.
SPRA has re-designed the website to meet the needs of researchers, donors of historical materials, municipal and cultural partners of the Archives, members of the SPRA Society, and generally anyone interested in the history of the South Peace.
Research is still, of course, a top priority, and you will find the “Research” button leads to all the online databases, finding aids and photographs which make up the bulk of this website.
A new component of the website is the “Donate Your Records” button. If you have boxes of documents and photographs sitting around and you’re not sure what to do with them, investigate this part of the website.
The records of the Archives’ financial partners—the City of Grande Prairie, the County of Grande Prairie, the MD of Greenview, and the MD of Spirit River—are featured in the “Partners and Supporter” section of the website. This is also where you can check out the collections of member museums and libraries, and the quarterly newsletter, stories, cemetery tours, and virtual exhibits.
Links at the top of the page connect you to the Facebook page, where you will find what’s happening at the Archives (like the Fashion photo contest with prizes!) or the YouTube Channel where you can watch archival film or listen to oral histories.
Many thinks to website designer Simone Bowes for creating this exciting new website..
*Please note at this time the google search box at the top of the page does not pick up information from the databases. You will have to search them individually under the “Online Databases” tab.
