Multnomah County Reference Books and Lookup Volunteers

Here are the Multnomah County books in which kind people have volunteered to do look-ups. If you own any Multnomah County books, whether listed or not, and are willing do look-ups, please let me know. If you know of any other published Multnomah County resources, not listed, please send Julie  a message

Feel free to request a look-up from the following books. Please limit your request to one name per request.

If you request a lookup, don't forget to thank your volunteer for his or her time.

Remember the people listed on this page are volunteers. Some of whom volunteer for multiple counties and multiple books. Taking the time to follow a few guidelines will make their job much easier. If the volunteers are overwhelmed with the number of vague lookup requests, they might quit doing lookups all together.

Please follow these required guidelines for lookup requests. Requests which do not follow this format may not be answered:  

1. Subject line of your lookup request should state: "Lookup request( including county)-- Name of Book"

2. Give all information you have that might be relevant-- birth, marriage or death dates; dates person was living in Multnomah County.

3. Make your request for information specific-- what are you looking for: a marriage record, a census listing. Don't just ask for "Any information you have on John James".

  Riverview Cemetery Records  

I own a copy of the Oregon State Death Index and have many contacts with funeral homes and other cemetery people on the area. I have access to the records of  the Metro Pioneer Cemeteries, some 50,000+ burials. I am willing to obtain information for anyone who e-mails for family research.
PS: I also will do special research for hire, i.e.: obits, funeral home records, biographical sketches, etc.
