Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

 


Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers. 

This state site is available for adoption!

If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails as the host of this state site or any of our county websites,
view our
Volunteer Page for all the ins and outs of becoming a host.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

An autonomous government was formed in the Oregon Country in 1843.

The Oregon Territory was created in 1848.

On February 14, 1859, Oregon was admitted to the union as the 33rd state.

Oregon was inhabited by many indigenous Native American tribes before Western traders, explorers, and settlers arrived.

At 11,249 feet, Mount Hood, a stratovolcano, is the state's highest point.

The deepest lake in the U.S. is Crater Lake in Klamath County, formed by the collapse of the Mount Mazama volcano in the Crater Lake National Park.
