Did Your Ancestors "Go West"?

One of the most frustating things for me is having to start researching in a 'new' state. It has taken me years, but if I find a new ancestor in the Midwest I can quickly make progress getting their information together.

But all too often one of these midwestern ancestors went west and I am scouring about to find records in far flung states, like Alaska.

The Alaska History and Genealogy ( has original content and links to other sites to help in your research, so if one of your ancestors had that 'Westward Ho' bug, check it out.

BTW - Alaska became a state on January 3, 1959.
