YUKON, CANADA =

        From:

Cindy & SELLERS-Lers,

As Jim Sellars pointed out, Dawson City, Yukon Territory, is part of
Canada ... so the record findings, if filed, may be more appropriate
as a subdivision of Canada.  My typo started the error & I apologize
for that.  Should have read my work more carefully before posting.

Cindy, you asked about links for the Klondike area.

Here are some I marked earlier and have not explored for both Alaska &
Yukon Territory.

Also went back to try "zell" as a search on the original site
<http://www.gold-rush.org/ghost-07.htm> and found more Zeller/ar names
than with the "s" spelling and plan to try other variations in case
spelling was way off.

These links are on About.com's Arctic/Northern Culture site for both
Alaska and Yukon and I notice some of them no longer are active:
<http://arcticculture.about.com/culture/arcticculture/library/ya/msub8y.htm
>

To confuse things more, there is the Yukon & Alaska Genealogy Centre:
<http://yukonalaska.com/pathfinder/gen/index.html>

Meanwhile, has anyone else noticed that many (most?) atlases do not
include maps for Yukon and Northwest Territories?  Especially in
relation to Alaska?   But that's another list ...

Cheers!

Thanks Cindy,

My information came from a wonderful, searchable online collection of
Yukon gold rush
databases that includes instructions on requesting additional
information:

Filson's Pan for Gold database
<http://www.gold-rush.org/ghost-07.htm>

Here are the full results I came up with but you may want to try
different searches:

the Canadian federal government to maintain law and order in the midst

they confiscated guns and maintained written records of every
individual who arrived at the summit. This database contains some of
those records (December 1898 to May, 1899)]:
