Deaths and Departures

Clary Craig, a post office worker in Dawson City, maintained a list of people leaving the Klondike by death or departure. Many of the almost 14,000 entries list forwarding addresses or destinations for those leaving the Klondike. The predominance of Nome, Alaska as one listed destination is consistent with other historical records documenting a mass exodus from Dawson to Nome in 1899. Like a giant nomadic tribe, thousands streamed toward Nome when rumours hit Dawson that there were flakes of gold in the sands of Nome's beaches.

Placermining Grants Volume 1
After gold was discovered in 1896 on Bonanza Creek, thousands of claims were staked along tributaries of the Yukon and Klondike Rivers. The Yukon Gold Commissioner's Office issued "Placermining Grants," enabling prospectors to become miners and work their claims for "placer" findings (mineral deposits containing gold, left by glaciers or rivers ).
This, the first of three Placermining Grants volumes, lists almost 20,000 numbered grants and the names of their owners.

1901 Census Records

Placermining Applications Vol 3
The third of three "Placerming Grants Volumes."

Sourdough Stampede Association members
"Sourdough" was fermented flour and water that Klondike stampeders carried with them ready to cook. Eventually, "sourdough" became the term used to describe the miners themselves: "One who had been in the country long enough to see the ice form in the fall and break up in the spring." Little is known about the Sourdough Stampede Association, but in this database you'll find the names of some of its members.

Name, Description (Association Name & Year, when Arrived, How, Occupation, Location, When Left)
BARLOW, CAPT. DAN Sourdough Stampede Assoc. Inc. 1930. Left for AK, 1897; Ar. Skagway 1898, via Capt. Schr. Admiral, Outside Van Island; Left 1918


Victims of the marine disaster with SS Pricess Sophia 1918
On Oct. 19, 1918, the crew and passengers of the S.S. Princess Sophia perished in the icy waters of the Lynn Canal, 65 miles south of Skagway. Rescue ships stood by helplessly, battling mountainous waves and freezing temperatures as 379 men, women and children were lost at sea.
This database lists the names of those who drowned.

NWMP records at Chilkoot:
checkpoints listing people who entered the yukon
The North West Mounted Police were dispatched by the Canadian federal government to maintain law and order in the midst of Klondike chaos. The mounties set up a post along the Canadian-American border at the summit of the Chilkoot Pass. Here, they confiscated guns and maintained written records of every individual who arrived at the summit. This database contains some of those records (December 1898 to May, 1899).

Date, Name, Checkpoint Entered
Jun 1, 1898 BARLOW, C. Los Angeles - boat 1667
Jun 7, 1898 BARLOW, CHAS Vancovuer, BC - boat 12881


NWMP records at Lake Bennett:
people who entered the Yukon via boats
Just as they kept track of Chilkoot crossings and boats built at Lake Bennett, the North West
Mounted Police maintained records of individuals arriving at and leaving Dawson City on Yukon River steamships. These dockside archives list ships such as the S.S. Nora, S.S. Gleaver, S.S. Bailey and S.S Australian as INWARDS or OUTWARDS (bound).

Date, Name, Checkpoint Entered
