The collection consists of scrapbooks and other materials used by Alice C. Green to write her book "Footprints on the Sand of Time: A History of Alberton". Included in this collection are newspaper clippings, correspondence, notes, and transcribed information. There are also six land conveyances dating from 1873, 1892, 1911, and 1913. Most of the newspaper clippings and notes are related specifically to the community and people of Alberton. The nature of these articles vary but include announcements of birthdays, marriages, obituaries, community events, activities and other points of interest relating to Alberton. There are also many articles of general interest related to the history of PEI. The material is arranged roughly by subject within the collection. Some of the clippings in the scrapbooks date from the 1920s and 1930s but the majority of clippings and other materials in the collection are dated 1942-1979. Also included in the collection is the Dominion Census returns for Alberton, 1921.
