Our members include the general public, professional historians, educators and writers – anyone with a passion for history.

The Edmonton and District Historical Society (EDHS) is a local chapter of the Historical Society of Alberta (HSA), a provincial organization created in 1907 to preserve and disseminate Alberta’s history through its publications. When you become a member of the EDHS, you also become a member of the HSA.

How to Join

To join EDHS, print the Historical Society of Alberta Membership Form and mail it with payment to the HSA at the address on the form. The HSA will register you, and forward your membership details to us. You’ll become a member of the HSA and EDHS at the same time, for one membership price.

As an EDHS member, you will receive a local quarterly newsletter with information on the Speaker Series, Historic Festival and Special Events. As part of your accompanying membership in the HSA you will receive the quarterly newsletter History Now and the quarterly journal, Alberta History.
