Listed in Directories and Gazetteers, Employment Records

This archived website hosts free records of Yukon Gold Rush Participants. It boasts over 24,200 goldrush participants and the names are alphabetical by last name. 

“The list was compiled by a Mrs. M.L. Ferguson of Los Angeles, who first visited Dawson City in 1899. She had with her letters to persons living in the Yukon but had a difficult time delivering them since there were no street names or addresses. Ferguson was inspired to publish the Directory and Gazetteer of the Yukon Territory and applied to Yukon Council for the right to number houses and erect street signs on corners. While compiling the directory, Ferguson fell ill and was forced to return to California. She handed the project over to Barnes & Baber, who published it as “The Only Yukon-Alaska Directory for 1901″.”

“Use the list to find a specific name. Beside each name is a name or code representing the area wherein the person resided. You will see: Skagway, Nome, Council City, Juneau, Whitehorse, Teller City, and others. Also included beside each name is the individual’s listed occupation at the time the information was compiled. Most, as you will note, are miners.”
