Dear Mr. Gastrock,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives and located the series Headquarters Tract Books for Alaska, 1800-1964 in the Records of the Bureau of Land Management (Record Group 49) that includes records related to homestead patents. These records have not been digitized. For information about and access to them, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next, we located 5 additional series related to homestead patents in Alaska in Record Group 49, including case files and register books, that may also be relevant to your research. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at Seattle (RW-SE) at email@example.com for assistance with these and similar records.
Plus, We located the series Alaska Townsite Deed Books, 1906-1975 in Record Group 49 that contains some information about homestead patents. This series has been digitized and can be viewed online via the Catalog. You may contact RW-SE with any questions you might have about these records.
In addition, you may wish to use the Catalog to explore other records created by the Bureau of Land Management’s Fairbanks (Alaska) Land Office, the Anchorage (Alaska) Land Office, the Juneau (Alaska) Land Office, the Sitka (Alaska) Land Office, and the Alaska State Office.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1 and RW-SE. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Finally, more information about homestead patents in Alaska may be located using FamilySearch’s Alaska Land and Property website, as well as on the Bureau of Land Management’s History of Alaska Homesteading website.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
