Douglas County is available for adoption!

As you can see this county is looking for someone to adopt it and spend some time making it look nice and fill it with helpful information for the researchers searching in the area! Please check out the volunteer page to find out what it takes to be a host and while you are looking around why don't you join the mailing list for the Pacific Coast 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.

"Douglas County was named for U.S. Senator Stephen A. Douglas, Abraham Lincolnís opponent in the presidential election of 1860 and an ardent congressional advocate for Oregon. Douglas County was created in 1852 from the portion of Umpqua County which lay east of the Coast Range summit. In 1862, Douglas County absorbed what remained of Umpqua County." Oregon Blue Book
