I. Introduction

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.

Individual members of GGS as shown below under Lookups, will perform lookups in the resources or subjects they have listed. GGS as a society will not do lookups nor in-depth research.


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.
