Genealogy By the States – Week 49 – Alaska

Alaska

Not much in the way of Alaskan genealogy for me.  I supposedly have a cousin who worked on the Alaskan pipeline in the 1930s, but I haven’t been able to prove this, primarily due to a lack of time for researching.  But I have found a variety of websites related to Alaska that may be of interest to those with Alaskan roots.  You can check them out on my Alaska Genealogy list through Diigo.


Genealogy By the States is a theme created by Jim Sanders over at the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets blog.

    Julie, I’m fairly sure there wasn’t a pipeline in the 1930s. There was one, however, in the 1970s, when I was growing up (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Alaska_Pipeline_System). Geological surveys were made for it in the 1920s. Other occupation options for the 1930s could include fishing, mining, lumbering, road construction, and military bases.

      Good to know, Miriam. Family story reported by the sister, no dates, just “after this event…” so based on what I do have, I assume the 30s. Perhaps she was mistaken about what he was doing in Alaska, or maybe he was never there. Who knows ;) Now, if only I had time to investigate… :)
