GFO’s 75th Yr Marks Digital Milestones

The Genealogical Forum of Oregon has hit main milestones throughout its 75th anniversary yr. The GFO now has:
  • Uploaded a quarter million digital pages and made them accessible to members within the
  • GFO web site’s MemberSpace
  • Offered 503 lookups for members in the course of the pandemic library closure
  • Hosted 253 on-line lessons and conferences
The GFO has added 258,211 digital pages to its on-line library since December 24, 2020.

1000’s extra are uploaded each week. Volunteers scan paperwork, use software program to make
printed textual content phrase searchable, title and manage the recordsdata, and add them to the web site. These
embody Oregon beginning, dying, and marriage information; genealogical journals; manuscript collections;
and dozens of eBooks that present cemetery information, pioneer registers, very important information indexes, and
a lot, rather more.

The general public can get a glimpse of what’s accessible right here:

These sources will stay accessible to members within the GFO’s MemberSpace, even after the
library reopens for analysis in just a few weeks. Lookups for members who can not go to the library
will proceed as properly. All particular curiosity teams, seminars, workshops and board conferences will
proceed to be held on-line.

The world is digital and the GFO has embraced this new actuality.
