This new publication is a special historical research of Eloi DeGrace, archivist in Edmonton, for the centennial of the City of Edmonton, Alberta.
Glanures du Edmonton Bulletin is a 450-page publication that contains information taken from the first newspaper published in Alberta.
The author has collected from the first Edmonton newspaper the information on French speaking individuals of various origins who came in the Alberta capital from 1880 to 1907: French, French Canadian, Belgian, Swiss, and French Metis.
While much information can be found on well-known Franco-Albertans like Father Lacombe or Justice Rouleau, researchers will also find interesting pieces of information on less-known individuals like Frank Mariaggi, Jules Chave, Alexis Degagne, or Leon Moret.
In addition to biographical or genealogical information, many pages of notes and news items were collected on localities like Edmonton, St. Albert, Morinville and Fort Saskatchewan.
The researcher will find references to longer articles, but most news items were copied as they were published in the Edmonton Bulletin.
