Welcome! I'm Jan Bony. the temporary coordinator for Clackamas Co ORGenWeb. This county is available for adoption. If you are interested, please read the Project Volunteer and Web Site Standards/Guidelines, and then email me.

I am still in the process of fixing broken links and trying to confirm email address on many pages, so if something is broken, please email me and I can check the information to see if it is in the old pages.

I do not live in Clackamas County, so will be unable to do any lookups, however, if you have information you would like to add to this site, or you find a link that doesn't work, please let me know and use Clackamas in the subject line.

Be sure to check out the new What's New page!

Clackamas County, named after the Clackamas Indians, was one of the four original districts created by the Provisional Legislature on July 5, 1843. In 1843 Clackamas County covered portions of four present-day states and one Canadian province. The Columbia River was made the northern boundary of the county in 1844. The United States-Great Britain Boundary Treaty of 1846 relocated the northern border of both the United States and Clackamas County at latitude 49deg. The Act of Congress that created Washington Territory in 1853 enclosed Clackamas County within the present-day boundaries of Oregon. Clackamas County acquired its current boundaries in 1854. The county is bounded by Multnomah County to the north, Wasco County to the east, Marion County to the south, and Yamhill and Washington Counties to the west. The county encompasses 1,879 square miles. Read More...
