Oregon Newspapers on Microfilm

at the Oregon Historical Society

List prepared April 2001 by Connie Lenzen, CGSM

The Oregon Historical Society in Portland, Oregon, has a large collection of Oregon newspapers on microfilm. The following list was compiled from the index created in the 1970s by the reference staff.

I have special rates for obituaries because I go to the Oregon Historical Society Library on a regular basis and can group obituary requests. This results in a saving to my clients.
