Thanks Stella for the info.

It is good to know that the Orthodox church was once Catholic. I think I remember reading about the history in the area of some churches becoming Greek Orthodox but didn't know which ones.

I am hoping to save some money as ordering birth certificates for at least 10 people can be expensive! My Grandmother's birth was before Alberta was a province as well so not sure if they would even have records for her.

The two names I am researching is Iwaschuk/Iwazczuk and Chwyl. My great grandparents were Jacob and Barbara Iwaschuk and Luc and Fanny Chwyl - their son Nick and Martha Iwashcuk -Chwyl were my grandparents. I do have a copy of family history from the Bruderhiem History book. It has a write up of Jacob's brother, Fred (Teodore) and his family. I did locate a book on the internet from Chipman (I think that is the name??) that has the names of Jacob and Barbara but have not actually seen the book yet to get the write up on them.

If you have any further info I would appreciate it.

I think I will try the Basilian Fathers in Mundare to start. I know all these people existed but would be nice to have copies of their batismals at the very least.
