Abstract: The Aylesworth Ellsworth Collection is a compilation of genealogical research including journals, land deeds, marriage and birth records, family group sheets, newspaper clippings, copies of original source materials, and handwritten notes.

Prominent surnames within the collection include Aylesworth, Ellsworth, Lyon, McDonald, Pierce and Birnie. According to the research contained in the collection, the Ellsworth-formally spelt Aylesworth-family originally hailed from Scotland and England, and resided in Rhode Island and central New York State during the early 1700's before migrating west to Oregon. Digital photographs are have been taken of the collection's oversized materials.
