Heritage Collection

With the Foundation’s support, the Library has built a strong local history and genealogy collection with extensive statewide and regional resources, including local cemetery indexes, as well as many helpful guides and sources for U.S. and international research. Library staff members are available and eager to help get you started and assist with challenging genealogical questions.

Library patron Vern Wise says,

“I have been interested in Genealogy for a good number of years; however, there was a big void in my pursuit concerning the history of immigration and settlements in America.

As a longtime user of our library for pleasure reading, little did I know that the Wilsonville Library had an unbelievable Genealogy collection. The collection and knowledgeable staff filled in many of my voids with volumes of local, national and international history and resources.

I would encourage anyone interested with genealogy to take the time for a visit. You might find answers to your questions.”
