(See also Oregon Pioneer for more web sites)
If you have a website listing your family history, and think it would be useful to other researchers, why not let the ORGenWeb Project place a link to it here? Contact Jan Bony if you're interested. Also, please contact me if a link is NOT working so it can be removed. Where a web site had a different email address, I tried to correct it.
Dan Matney has amassed information on the MATNEY Family including Walter J Matney (one who rode the mule and challenged Nesmith to that dual) Also Sam K Matney who shot Modocs and showed them - he too - could scalp people. You can find his site at www.d-matney.com
I have a web site for my family research at  www.greg.bennette.org. Oregon family surnames include Bennette, Bennett, Odell, Gowdy, Garrison, Clark, Sawyer, Hopper, Roelofson, Kemp, Delashmutt, and Lee. Other surnames include Tuggle, Helm, Beard, Gates, McCormick, and Maxwell. My earliest Oregon ancestor arrived in the Willamette Valley (south of Salem, near Eugene) in 1843. Most arrived in the 1852-53 migrations.
