Help Index Oregon Marriage Records
You are cordially invited to an online “wedding” recaption – and indexing party!
On Tuesday, Nov. 30, the Genealogical Forum of Oregon is sponsoring an online event to index Multnomah County marriage records from 1917-1924.
Way back in 1981, the GFO acquired the county’s original marriage register books for 1885-1924. Over four decades, dedicated volunteers have indexed the registers to 1916. But we get many requests in the “missing” years, so it’s time to finish the job!
These records have proven to be an invaluable source for Oregon and Southern Washington researchers.
For the first time, GFO is trying out our annual volunteer work party as a one-day, interactive event entirely online. You can join the fun for the whole day or even just an hour. You do not need to be a member, just willing to dedicate a little time to support genealogy. For more information and to RSVP, please visit http://gfo.org/givingtuesday.
