Welcome to the Oregon Genealogical Society


The Oregon Genealogical Society is a FamilySearch Affiliate Library. You can access online records that are not available from home at our library on one of our patron computers or bring your laptop to the library. Most of the records that have a camera icon with the key above are accessible at the OGS Library.

This page will be updated often to keep you informed of changes to our schedules during the Covid-19 pandemic. As many of our members are at a higher risk of the virus we are acting to protect everyone.  We appreciate and thank you for your understanding during these times.
We are holding a public used book sale in June in our new annex and are looking for donations of books of all kinds. Whether you are doing your spring cleaning, decluttering, downsizing, or just want to help us out you can go through your shelves and boxes and gather up books you no longer need. Please let your friends, family and neighbors know that they can donate as well. OGS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit so your donation is tax deductible.
