Looking for maps, records, books, links and a variety of useful items?

We hope that you will find information on this site that will help you investigate your family'sh history. During the late 19th century, many immigrants arrived in the central Alberta area, often from Europe and the USA, seeking a new life. They forged a rich history that thrived on the values of hard work and the necessity of community, which continues in the area today.
The purpose of the GenWeb Projects is to collect and share genealogical information on the Web for free.. Sites in the Canada GenWeb Project are arranged by Country, Province and County, and provide those researching their family history with ideas as to where and how to go about locating their family's stories.

Suggestions or comments about improving this site, are always appreciated. Should you have any County of Ponoka related information, family stories, or pictures, etc that you would like to contribute, I encourage you to contact me about posting them on our site. Sharing with other researchers
has lead to family connections! (please also visit our "can you help?" section...
I sincerely hope that the County of Ponoka GenWeb Project site provides you with some clues to assist you as you build your family's story, and I wish you success as you learn about your ancestors!
Happy digging!
