Oregon Historical Records Index

Oregon Historical Records Index is available for researching online for free. This index includes information regarding vital records, land records, military records, and more. When researching a family name, it is best to utilize the search engine by either typing in just the surname or the first name. If you include both the first and last name, it is best to search by placing the last name first then a comma, with adding the first name last. Another way to utilize the search engine is by searching for the first name only and then inputting as much information that you can to help narrow down the search. Either way works well.

The index is available for the following counties and jurisdictions in Oregon:
