Help Index Oregon Marriage Records

The following was written by the Genea­logi­cal Forum of Oregon:

You are cordially invited to an online “wedding” re­ception – 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!

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
