Under Alaska law, the adverse, and notorious use of real property in good faith and under the mistaken impression that it is the property of the user, creates a "conclusive presumption" of title. If the property has been used by the previous owner and by you, believing it to be theirs and yours, then you are the owner of that property, and you can file a civil action to "quiet title" to the property in your name.
