Yukon Archives Genealogy Database
As the Yukon evolved after the Gold Rush, other events shaped the population, including the construction of the Alaska Highway and the move of the territorial capital to Whitehorse in 1950. As genealogical research follows the lives of those who came after the Klondike stampede, Yukon Archives has created access to a number of relevant records in addition to the Gold Rush information provided by Dawson Museum. The vast holdings at the Archives comprise Yukon records relevant to Yukon people.
The information on this database comes from a variety of records, focusing on the period from 1894-1958. Sources include regimental histories, city records for Whitehorse and Dawson, a 1935 British Columbia and Yukon Directory of towns and cities, and manuscripts including an electoral list and list of residents of Whitehorse. New resources will be added to the Yukon Archives Genealogy Research Database as staff time permits.
