Sandy Wilber has done a tarrific job of collecting and transcribing records brought to Oregon by the pioneers.
The Oregon Trail Story.
Other Trails by Condor Stories by Sandy Wilber
After discovery of gold in California, not all wagon trains continued west to Oregon. Some in 1848/49 left the Oregon Trail at Green River, Idaho to turn south to the gold fields of California.
These are all included here because when the gold played out, many families came north to Oregon.
There are many more trains to add as soon as they are transcribed.
