Yukon Genealogy

My first exposure to the Yukon was a TV program I watched as youngster - Sgt. Preston of the Yukon (and his wonder dog King). I also once owned one square inch of land in the Yukon complements of Quaker Oats.  I guess the deeds were never filed, so my fortune in Yukon gold is long gone.  But there were many that went west to find gold in the Yukon.  This site "follows the lives of those who came after the Klondike stampede." Yukon Archives includes material from the Dawson Museum and other records of the brave people that settled there. The site makes available a search engine that draws from eight separate databases. They have been compiling this data since 2002.
