Genealogy Blogging Beat – Saturday, 16 August 2014

Aug 16, 1896. According to the oral tradition of the Tagish First Nations People, Skookum Jim, Dawson Charlie and George Carmack found gold in Rabbit Creek, a tributary of the Klondike River, lying “thick between the flaky slabs like cheese sandwiches.” This event, which led to the great Klondike Gold Rush, is celebrated in the Yukon each year with a public holiday, Discovery Day, observed on the nearest Monday.
