A river runs through Olds

A local man’s genealogy research uncovers a connection with a famous author


A popular movie A River Runs Through It was based on a book by Montana author Norman Maclean. Andrew Kelly from Olds Alberta used genealogy research including family records, internet sites, libraries and books to uncover the connection his family has with the Macleans. We asked Andrew about the movies accuracy.

If you are interested in genealogy and would like to trace your family tree contact the Olds & District Municipal Library that offers a genealogy help session as well as access to computers and books.
