Many thanks to our former host Robyn Greenlund for all her hard work on this site.

This Coos County website contains a variety of genealogical records including birth announcements, marriages, military records, census, biographies, schools, town, newspaper clippings and obituaries as shown on the menu to the left.

We regret that we do not have the time to perform personal research for you.
All data we come across will be placed on this website.

Coos County was created by the Territorial Legislature from parts of Umpqua and Jackson Counties in 1853 and included Curry County until 1855. The county seat was Empire City until 1896, when it was moved to Coquille. Although trappers had been in the area a quarter-century earlier, the first permanent settlement in present Coos County was at Empire City, now part of Coos Bay, by members of the Coos Bay Company in 1853. The name 'Coos' derives from a native Coos Bay Indian tribe and translates to 'lake' or 'place of pines.'
