About Us

Our mission is to share and enjoy the study of genealogy, provide assistance to people with ancestry in
Alaska, and to locate and preserve genealogical and historical data to make available for future generations.

DO NOT THROW AWAY your photos or documents!

The FGS would be glad to take or photocopy your genealogical and historical papers, photos, and books pertaining to Fairbanks, Alaska and surrounding areas for the purpose of digitizing and sharing ancestral information. There is no charge for this. Original copies will be stored.

We are actively seeking old photos or information on Clay Street Cemetery. Anything at all that may not look important may have valuable clues.

The FGS will be glad to share your older Alaska related stories and photos. Please tag us on Facebook in your posts or send a message for us to share either on this website or on Facebook. Examples include: Paper records, film, microfilm, oral histories, pedigree charts, manuscripts, diaries, books, collections, old phone books, plat books, maps, photographs, obituaries, and historical accounts.

We meet on the 4th Tuesday of Sept, Oct, Nov, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, and May, at either
Blanchard Family Funeral Home, Alaska Mining Hall of Fame, or Noel Wien Library, Fairbanks, Alaska, as noted on the meeting announcement.
6pm – 8pm.
Meetings are free to attend and open to the public.
Some meetings may be online via Zoom.

Cold temperature rule
In person meetings may be cancelled for extreme cold weather, but we will meet online via Zoom!
