Newspapers can be a very valuable source of information; from an overview of life in an ancestor’s community to an informative obituary on his/her life.
Alberta’s first newspaper, ''The Edmonton Bulletin'', started publication in 1880; ''The Calgary Herald'' in 1883. ''The Calgary Tribune'', 1883, became''The Albertan'' in 1886. Local newspapers ran in small cities and towns but often intermittently.<ref>Borgstede, Arlene.
