OGS is a FamilySearch Affiliate Library 
  

The Oregon Genealogical Society is a FamilySearch Affiliate Library which means you can access online records that are not available from home at our library on one of our patron computers or bring your laptop to the library. Most of the records that have a camera icon with the key above are accessible at the OGS Library.
