We wish to thank our donors, some of whom have been extremely generous this past year. The Tanana Yukon Historical Society depends upon this kind of support and every donation is welcome, no matter its size. With these contributions, we have been able to carry out some projects and acknowledge vital members of our community who have passed on. BUT we need some ideas of how to spend your money. If you have a history-related project in mind please contact us! tyhs@alaska.net.
