NWMP at Lake Bennett Volume 2: listing people who entered the Yukon (6,133 records)

The second of three volumes of Lake Bennett records maintained by the North West Mounted Police.

These records list the names and boat numbers of stampeders embarking on the Yukon River trip from Lake Bennett to Dawson City. Led by legendary mountie Sam Steele, the North West Mounted Police contingent at Lake Bennett worked painstakingly to keep track of the flotilla of 7,000 boats, skows, barges and rafts.
