Biographies of Alaska-Yukon Pioneers 1850-1950, Volume 2
Biographies of Alaska-Yukon Pioneers 1850-1950, Volume 2 - Ed Ferrell. This work fills the void by making obscure and un-indexed material available to researchers in Alaskan and Canadian history and genealogy.
Volume 2 contains more than 400 additional biographies, alphabetically arranged and full of fascinating information and family history. It is rich in Northwest history, and should appeal to researchers in the West and Northwest whose ancestors may have been Alaska-Yukon immigrants. Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco were points of departure and return; some of the immigrants settled in those regions after trying their luck on the frontier.
The majority of these early Alaskans came to the territory between 1880 and 1910. The main sources used for this compilation were newspaper obituaries and magazine articles. Each biography is followed by one or more citations naming the publication and date of issue from which the information was obtained. A list of all newspapers and magazines cited is included at the end of the book.
