Marion County ORGenWeb
Hi! My name is Constance, I am the new coordinator of Wasco County ORGenWeb. If you have problems with the website, comments about, or if you would like to contribute information to the Marion County Project, please email me. Because I don't live in Marion county so I am unable to do on site research, but I will do my best to help you find what you are looking for.
 
Marion County, then called Champooick, was created by the Provisional Government in 1843, 16 years before Oregon  gained statehood. In 1849 the name was changed to Marion  in honor of Gen. Francis Marion.

The county, located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, has the Willamette River as its western boundary and the Cascade Range on the east. Salem, the county seat, is one of the valley’s oldest cities. 

Among its public buildings are the Marion County Courthouse, Courthouse Square county office building and Cherriots bus transit mall (opened in September 2000), State Capitol, Capitol Mall buildings and Salem Civic Center. The county was presided over by the Marion County Court until January 1, 1963, when the court was abolished and replaced by a Board of Commissioners.

About the ORGenWeb Project
In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database.
The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored.
In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found
in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and
generally oversee the contents of the web page. The ORGenWeb Project is an extension of the
KYGenWeb Project.
