The Taproot Newsletter is published once a month during Sept, Oct, Nov, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, and May.

Members are mailed or emailed a copy of the current Taproot every month we meet.
Previous years Taproot Newsletters are available to members. 

Please enjoy the first edition of the FGS newsletter,
FGS North Star Nuggets 1975 First Edition

If you would like to contribute to the next issue, please contact the FGS with your idea, photo, or article related to Fairbanks or Alaska. Submissions are gladly accepted. Taproot Newsletters are shared not only with members, but some genealogy libraries to be preserved for future generations. 

Here are a few ideas:

Write about someone in your family tree. Did they marry multiple times? How many children did they have? Was someone notorious? Did you find an interesting document that opened up a brick wall?

Do you have a DNA story to tell? Is there an adoption in your family? 

Write about the town an ancestor is from. Write about their migration, church, farm, or surname. 

Alaskan heritage; Did your family arrive during the gold rush? Was your family Native Alaskan? Describe how your village or town was over 100 years ago. Photos or drawings welcome. 

What advice did you receive from your parents/grandparents/other relative? Do you want to share a family recipe or a rare photo?
