Fall has arrived! The trees were colored in their Sunday best, but most of the leaves are now on the ground. There has even been some frost on the pumpkins in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. The Willamette Valley extends from Portland in the north to Cottage Grove in the south and from the Cascade foothills in the east to the Coast Range in the west.
With the cooler weather, it is a good time to come into the Genealogy Library and work on the family tree. There are always new branches to find and leaves to add. Some trees are like the Oak - big and spread out. These are great for climbing. Others are like the Palm - are not so easy to climb. What type of tree is your family tree?
We have books and information for every State in the Union and many foreign countries. Our Library is the keeper of the older copies of "The New Era", the local newspaper. We have the years 1930-1946 on microfilm and CD and the years 1947-2012 in bound books.
