Special thanks to Bonnie Mazzerole and the family of Joe and Lillian Kessler
for sharing their parents' own Yukon romance.
The Claude and Mary Tidd records were donated to the Yukon Archives by Mary's
brother, Mark Ryder and his wife, Myrna. The first accession was received in 1977,
with subsequent records acquired in the early 1990s in conjunction with an exhibit
curated by Robin Armour. The Yukon Archives is grateful to the generosity of
the Ryders, and to all donors who make archival materials available for the education
and access of all.
We invite comments about the site, and would especially appreciate the names of individuals who we have not been able to identify. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
