Genealogical Research in Anchorage
Genealogical research in Anchorage is a little more challenging in the Great Land, as many of us have moved here from other States and countries and our roots, so to speak, are elsewhere; whereas, Native Alaskans have been here for thousands of years.
We meet on the First Wednesday of the month, in the Public Conference Room at the Z. J. Loussac Library, from 7:00 pm
to 9:00 pm.
·One of the thirteen National Archive Centers (NARA) is
located in Anchorage.
·An excellent Genealogical Section and the Alaskan Room in the
Z. J. Loussac Library.
·The Anchorage Genealogical Society (AGS) with a friendly,
knowledgeable group of people who are willing to share
information, tips on research, and offer support to others.
·A friendly Family History Center.
We conduct Beginning Genealogy Classes and Intermediate Genealogy Classes twice a year.
We have an annual seminar in April featuring nationally known speakers. Recent speakers have been "Dear Mrytle;" Meagan Smolenyak; Sharon Carmack; Dan Lynch; Lloyd Bockstruck; and Loretta Luce Evans. The featured speaker in the spring of 2013 will be D. Joshua Taylor, and in the fall, it will be Geoff Rasmussen.
