Borough of Juneau, Alaska
Alaska Daughters, a native women’s society.
The Alaska Daughters, commonly but incorrectly termed “Native Daughters”—is a splendid organization of enterprising and progressive Native women, whose efforts deserve far more notice and encouragement than they have ever received.
Alaska Historical Society
The Alaska Historical Society is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization dedicated to the promotion of Alaska history by the exchange of ideas and information, the preservation and interpretation of resources, and the education of Alaskans about their heritage. Governed by a 15-member board, the Society provides a forum and a vehicle to achieve these goals. AHS is a membership organization with 430+ members.
Gastineau Genealogical Society
The Gastineau Genealogical Society is a non-profit, non-dues-paying Society (see Charter & Bylaws) operating in accordance with IRS 302(C). There are no employees, paid or otherwise.
The Society is named after Gastineau Channel, an inland arm of the Pacific Ocean, which separates Douglas Island from the mainland on which Juneau lies. The Channel is probably named for John Gastineau, an English Civil Engineer who surveyed and mapped for the British Columbia government and private interests. He died in Victoria, B.C., Canada in 1885.
