Family History Research at Yukon Archives


Yukon Archives has an extensive collection of photographs, moving images (film and video), and sound recordings. Archives staff work with donors and long-time Yukoners to identify persons and places in the photographs and moving images. Sound recordings and moving images are summarized in textual form to help make the searching of these records more practical. Audiovisual records are of great value to genealogists by helping to bring context and detail to the lives of their ancestors.
