Found a 1928 picture of Kasaan in the Alaska Southeastern magazine today. Found some other possible sources at the library today. A newspaper file index for birth,death and divorce announcements (pre 1900 and after 1900)and a index for Polk Alaska-Yukon Gazeeter(list of businesses and employment of people) for 1901,1911,1912,and 1916. I know there are more recent editions that have not been indexed. Why pay? I can look at the 1910 census at the library on microfilm. It is a lot easier to use and read. I have to get my tire change tommorrow and the library is only 3 or 400 yards from the tire shop. It would be better then sitting in the shop until they get to my car. Were they living in Ketchikan or Kasaan in the spring or early summer of 1910 or 1920? I have Family treemaker CD110(Social Security), which tells where the last check went to. Also you need to go to the Social Security office and ask for the form that will get you your father's record(s). Send me his full name, where his SS card was issued and place of death and I can look up his SS#. Oh, I have access to the old Ketchikan newspapers also. One other possibility is, that your father's brother/sister applied for delayed birth certificates from Alaska. They may have need them during the World Wars I and II or for employment. So the Alaska Bureau of Vital Statistics may have records. Ketchikan should have some records prior to 1913(hospital,city,church).I think there is a genealogical/ historical society of some sort in Ketchikan.
