Alaska Online Historical Directories

Expand your research by checking out the Alaska Online Historical Newspapers here.


The State of Alaska has no counties--only judicial boroughs and census districts. Because there are not many Alaska Historical Directories available online at this time, I am choosing to list them all on one page. Should more be uploaded to the internet, I will begin to list them by census areas.

Links to directories at GenealogyToday are to the search engine for that particular directory, which is searchable without a subscription. Non-subscribers can use the search engine and see a listing of possible results (but no images or further details). For more information on how to access subscription websites, read Number 5 on my FAQs page.

In order to view directories at Historic Map Works, you must register (for free). This will give you 10 free credits allowing you to view 10 directories on the site. After you have used your 10 credits, you may either purchase more in increments of $10.00 each (each credit is worth 10 cents), or by purchasing a monthly subscription of $29.95 or a yearly one of $249.95. More info on rates is available here, and a list of available directories is here.
