I have the census microfilms for all of the Oregon County, Missouri Census years of 1850-1920, [excluding the 1890 census, of course] and will do lookups. I also have other valuable resources and connections and can check those as well.
If you find that your families might have crossed over to other counties, there is also a new AREA Mailing List available.. This mailing list is a very active one, and covers: Oregon, Shannon, Carter, Ripley, Howell, and Texas Counties in MO and Fulton, Sharp, Randolph, and Lawrence Counties in AR. Many members on this list have resources from these counties and are generous in their offering to do lookups. If you can't find them in one of the counties, we can point you to the correct one, or you will at least be
able to scratch a particular county off your list.. This AREA HISTORY List is not in competition with any county lists, but is just a successful ripple in the family research pond! If interested:
You can subscribe by sending a message toMO-OREGON-HISTORY-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org
and type the word
in the subject line and message box.
A HISTORY website is also in the works and should be up soon for additional help.
Let me know if we can help you!
