Administrative history

Le projet Héritage Franco-albertain a commencé en 1979 en association avec Les Blés d'Or, un groupe de dance folklorique de St. Paul, Alberta. Dédié à la préservation de la culture franco-albertaine, le projet Héritage Franco-albertain avait pour but d'amasser plusieurs types de culture canadienne-française en Alberta, tel que des chansons, des dances, des recettes, des autobiographies, des historiques, et des photographes. Beaucoup de ce travail était enregistré sur vidéocassette. En mars 1981, le St. Paul French Culture Centre, où le projet était centré, a été détruit par un feu, et la majorité de la recherche était détruite aussi. Une publication, Voix Albertaines: Supplément Français à Voices of Alberta: A Survey of Oral History Completed in Alberta up to 1980, identifie les histoires orales collectionnées et rendu disponible par les efforts du projet.

Héritage Franco-albertain was a project begun in 1979 in association with Les Blés d'Or, a folk dance group from St. Paul, Alberta. Dedicated to preserving Franco-Albertan culture, the Héritage Franco-albertain project aimed to compile from across the province different types of French Canadian culture, including songs, dances, recipes, autobiographies, histories, and photographs. Much of their work was recorded on videocassette. In March 1981, the St. Paul French Culture Centre, where the project was centred, was destroyed by fire, and much of the research was also destroyed. A publication, Voix Albertaines: Supplément Français à Voices of Alberta: A Survey of Oral History Completed in Alberta up to 1980, identifies the oral histories collected and made available through the efforts of the project.

Custodial history

Ce fonds fut acquis par les Archives de l'Université de l'Alberta (UAA) de la part des Archives Saint-Jean, anciennement situé au Campus Saint-Jean de l'Université de l'Alberta. Le but principal des Archives Saint-Jean était de préserver le matériel archivistique qui avait déjà été acquis au fil des ans par l'ancien IRFOC (Institut de recherche francophone de l’ouest canadien) et ensuite par l’ancien IPFOC (Institut pour le patrimoine de la francophonie de l’ouest canadien).

This fonds was acquired by the University of Alberta Archives in 2019 from the Archives Saint-Jean that was previously housed at the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean. The Archives Saint-Jean’s main goal was to preserve archival materials that had already been acquired by the IRFOC (Institut de recherche francophone de l’ouest canadien) and subsequently by IPFOC (Institut pour le patrimoine de la francophonie de l’ouest canadien).
