The GFO exists to promote, educate, preserve, compile, and publish within the genealogical community.

GFO volunteers help to fulfill this mission by indexing records held by our library and records held by the Oregon State Vital Records Office. Indexing the key data on digital images and hand-written paper records creates searchable digital indexes which lead researchers to the original records. Genealogical research today would not be what it is without indexing.
