My life passion is doing genealogy research.  My goal is to help you with your research by filling this site with as much free information that relates to family histories as possible.

In order for this site to be successful and a rich treasure trove for genealogy buffs, I need your help with contributions of your data, history and stories.  Everything is helpful; obituaries, biographies, marriage records, birth/death records, burials, county history or anything else that might be of help to others.

If you have any comments, questions or contributions please email me.

Thank you and happy hunting -- Ronda D. Wagner

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.


Tillamook County, the twelfth county in Oregon to be organized, was established on December 15, 1853, when the Territorial Legislature approved an act to create the new county out of an area previously included in Clatsop, Yamhill and Polk Counties. The county was named after the Tillamook Indians who occupied the areas around the Tillamook and Nehalem Bays.

Tillamook County is located in the northwestern portion of the state and is bordered by Clatsop County on the north, Washington and Yamhill Counties on the east, Polk and Lincoln Counties on the south, and by the Pacific Ocean on the west. Boundary changes were enacted with Clatsop County (1855, 1870, and 1893), Lincoln County (1893), Washington County (1893, 1898), and Yamhill County (1887). The area of Tillamook County is 1,125 square miles.
