1899 – Cannibalism in Alaska

The Library of Congress newspaper collection has some very interesting stories. I was looking for information on Roger Provost and found another story to read and post in my blog.

“Cannibalism in Alaska”

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.

    1. The pictures I put on the blog are ref only. The link should get you to the article. Let me know if you can read the link. If not then I have to rethink how I put up the stories. I think they used this story as background to make a movie.
