New index released by Genealogy Today for areas around Bethel, Alaska
Genealogy Today has announced the release of a new index of names centered on the town and surrounding areas of Bethel, Alaska, dating back to the early 1900s. The index applies to information compiled by Margaret Felder Holland, written on 3 x 5 index cards. A search of the index will lead you to the scanned images of the actual index cards. The names at the top of each card are indexed, with additional names listed on each card of spoused, children, business partners, etc. Many cards include vital statistics (marriages, births, adoptions, and deaths), other cards have only information about the comings, goings and mining details of the people in the area. The collection was donated for indexing by Margaret Holland's daugther-in -law, Jeannie Ross. For more information on the background of this collection, see The Margaret Holland Collection.
