Genealogical, historical, lineage, veterans, fraternal, family name, and ethnic societies often collect, transcribe, and publish records useful to family historians. Local genealogical societies often help family history researchers contact local record searchers or copy records that mention the researcher's ancestors. A current list of archives and libraries can be found in the Alaska Archives and Libraries Wiki article. Some of these organizations have their own Internet sites. You can also find local society addresses by using directories cited in the United States Societies Wiki article.
