The fonds is divided into seven series based on record type and content: Executive Records, Financial Records, Correspondence and Publicity, Programs and Events, Publications and Resources, and Alberta Genealogical Society.

Portions of the fonds had a strongly apparent original order, which has been maintained by the Archivist as much as possible. Other miscellaneous groups of records were integrated into the series structure by the Archivist. Since the records arrived in several accessions from several sources, an overall order was not apparent.
