Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. These must usually be searched in person.

Fred Milan and Edna MacLean studied northern Eskimo families in Alaska and compiled family groups for six generations for 1825 to 1875. Some of this information (including dates and places of birth, sex, and whether full-blooded or part Eskimo) was published in:

Genealogical Record of Point Hope, Wainwright, and Anaktuvuk Pass, Alaska Eskimo Families 1825-1975. N.p., 198-. (Family History Library book 979.8 D2g; film 1035774 item 8.)

MacLean, Edna A. Genealogical Record of Barrow Eskimo Families. Barrow, Alaska: Naval Research Laboratory, 1971. (Family History Library fiche 6331386).

An index that gives references to over 1,800 members of the Alaska Pioneer Organization is A Guide to the Pathfinder: A Monthly Journal of the Pioneers of Alaska, 1919-1926. This index is available at the Alaska Historical Library.
