 Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to transcribe and post genealogical source data so that family researchers can track their ancestors through time, throughout the country.  If you should have any questions, comments or contributions, please email me through the main page. 

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.

Curry County Flower
The Easter Lily

Named after Territorial Governor George L. Curry, the county was a part of “Coose” [sic] County until it was created in 1855. Port Orford was the county seat until 1859 when it was replaced by Ellensburg (it was later renamed Gold Beach).

Over 95% of all bulbs grown for the potted Easter Lily market are produced by just ten farms in a narrow coastal region straddling the California-Oregon border, from Smith River, California up to Brookings, Oregon, making the lily a recognized symbol of this beautiful area.

Join our mailing lists for researchers looking to connect and share information. You never
know who you might meet and what family data they may share with you -- it could start a whole new branch of the family! We also use the mailing lists to announce our website updates.

We are presently looking for 
volunteers to host other Oregon Counties that are up for adoption!!

If you think that you may be interested
in volunteering to host a county or one of our
other states that are available for adoption,
please view our
Volunteer Information Page
email Kim.

(A desire to transcribe data and the know-how to make a basic webpage is required.)

Remember to 
look around at the
other states and consider donating your source information -- every little bit helps someone.
