Oregon Genealogical Society

The OGS FamilySearch Affiliate Library is open

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.
Oregon Genealogical Society Sharing Forum
We have a new Facebook Group for our members and the public to use. The purpose of the site is to be able to share genealogy stories, new websites you have found, new or interesting tips to pass along to others, see if any other members may have information on a particular family (You never know), etc. This site is for all things related to genealogy. It is meant to be fun and educational. This is a site that one joins. It is not specific to only OGS members but is open to all people who are interested in genealogy or have Oregon ancestry.
