General Files

The sub-series consists of photographs and negatives produced from photographs. The images were gathered from a variety of families and individuals, primarily for use in the various publications produced by the DeBolt and District Pioneer Museum ( "Across the Smoky", "Bridges to the Past", "Edson to Grande Prairie Trail", and "DeBolt Country Club and Agricultural Society 60th Anniversary Book").

The sub-series is divided into two files: General Files - Negatives and General Files - Photographs to reflect how the images were originally maintained. There is some overlap of images between the two files.
