Alaska Genealogy Resources

When we research most states, we think in terms of counties or parishes but Alaska is different. They have fourteen municipalities and boroughs and thirteen native corporations as well as census enumeration districts. Because official vital records did not start until 1913 you will want to use church records as a substitute. Check on the state level for vital records after 1913. However, because of confidentiality laws, birth records become available after 100 years and marriage, death and divorce records after 50 years. Consider the history of Alaska, such as the dates of gold rushes, when trying to ascertain what records will help you learn about your ancestor.
