FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions – FHNAS
As an Alberta registered non-profit society, Friends of Historical Northern Alberta Society operates with the mission statement of: To Preserve and Promote the History of Northern Alberta.
FHNAS was established through the suggestion of stakeholders involved in preserving and promoting the history of northern Alberta. The primary goal was to create a website and app that would show our smaller, less known, places of history to promote visitation and engagement in the diverse history of the area.
It was also suggested that FHNAS be a central society, in which other historical groups could share information, cross promote, and be a go to place when there was a need or service that could be supported by other groups. In essence to be the central hub where the spokes of the wheel could connect.
History Check was launched on October 4th, 2017 at the Provincial Archives of Alberta. It includes 330+ community and regions, each with their Community Category Menu that includes:
- History & Museums
- Parks, Camping & Lodging
- Other Points of Interest
- Recreation & Things to Do
- Travel Services.
From the “Light Bulb Moment” on January 12, 2015, until launch was 996. With three primary workers that took History Check from concept to development in less than 1000 days, speaks to the commitment to the project. In that time we also accumulated support and followers – enough to fill 35′ of “Appreciation Scroll” that was open for signing at the launches.
We hope that you too see the value in this collaborative, community initiative and support us through sharing History Check, submitting content and offering any financial aid that you can.
