How can I find out about a place in Alaska?

You'll want to start by visiting this site's Communities page. There I have a list of all the Alaskan townships, cities, towns, hamlets, crossroads', post-offices and settlements that I know of, and hope to soon have online all the geographical information I have for those places. Once you've ascertained that a place exists, you might want to visit this site's Map Room which shows historical and contemporary maps of Alaska, to see if you can get a feel for the location of the place. Still can't find it? Let me know -- I'd love to learn more about the location for the benefit of future researchers.
