I have a branch of my family tree that moved right after the 1880 census and they were lost track of. One of the sons, perhaps named William Jasper, is said to have moved to Alaska and he was then lost track of. Anyone have any ideas on how to find if any McCullar/McCullars did in fact move there? He was born about 1862. I have absolutely zero luck locating any information for that area and would appreciate any help.

Thank you for your help!

Are these articles you located in the 50's online? Is there a way to email them to me or are there too many? As far as I can tell, all McCullar/McCullars are traced back to just 2 brothers, so I know if they aren't my line, they are the other. I'm trying to keep track of both so as not to get anyone confused or left out.

Thank you so very much for your help. I've had zero luck with Alaskan records.
