Welcome to the Oregon Trails site for Clackamas County!

This site is available for adoption!

Website updated with new data on
February 9, 2017

The goal is to offer tons of free genealogical information on each page. While the Illinois Genealogy Trails page was started before 2006, the rest of the states are starting out and we need your help. Perhaps you would like to Volunteer to host a county in Oregon, or even take on another state. Visiting the volunteer page on the main Genealogy Trails site will tell you everything you need to know.

Even if you don't want to do that I would love to have any source data you have used in your own search to add to these web pages. I need all your help! Even with the pages un-hosted I will be glad to put your information online so please feel free to email me with any questions, comments or information.

Don't forget to go to the main Genealogy Trails site through the logo above to see
the information we have for all of the states!

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.


"Clackamas County was named for the resident Clackamas Indians and was one of the four original Oregon counties created in 1843. Oregon City, the county seat, was the first incorporated city west of the Rockies, the first capital of Oregon Territory, and the site of the first legislative session."
