This page will contain Vital Record Resources,
and other Records that may be of interest.

For General Vital Record Research, begin with Family Search.
'Creative Searching' can be done using just a couple of simple parameters.
In the 'Search' Section, simply enter the place of Birth as Washington County, Oregon
Nothing else, unless you want to bracket years.
Then, at the top of the page is a word " Collections", click on that and a number of databases comes up. Check the ones you wish to see and you are well on your way to discovery!

These two Indexes were created using the above technique:
Marriages and Deaths
