The fonds includes minute books of Kerndale U.F.A. Local No. 775, 1918-1941, including financial and membership records. Includes a transcription of the 1918-1927 minute book produced in 2003. Includes the By-laws of the North Peace Purchasing Committee (ca. 1935).
The Kerndale U.F.A. Local No. 775, located in the district of Kerndale near the village of Berwyn in the Peace River region of Alberta, was founded in 1918. It became inactive in 1941.
The fonds had been in the possession of Jim and Eileen Allan.
The fonds consists of the minute book used by the Onoway U.F.A. Local No. 131 (1924-1942) and Onoway F.U.A. Local No. 527, with membership list (1949-1950); the account book (1919-1935); journal (1926-1936); and cheque book (1933-1934).
Onoway U.F.A. Local No. 131 was organized in the 1910s. By 1919 it was pooling its members' economic resources by shipping livestock and purchasing bulk quantities of feed, coal, and twine. The Local apparently became inactive in 1942. In 1949 some former members organized the Onoway F.U.A. Local No. 527, a Local of the Farmers' Union of Alberta. This organization apparently became inactive in 1950.
