Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. Usually these must be searched in person.

A notable genealogical collection is the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Collection. This collection consists of transcripts of Bible, cemetery, church, marriage, death, obituary, and will records. It was microfilmed in 1971 at the DAR Library in Washington, D.C., and is available on 33 reels (Familysearch.org for the DAR - Oregon). The volumes are arranged by county, and many volumes have individual indexes.

Many of the current genealogical societies in Oregon can be identified by an internet search with one of the many search engines using terms such as Oregon Genealogy.
