Oregon Donation Land Claim Index Search

Links to the right point to the first name on each of 18 index pages.

Donation Land Claims were granted to settlers of the Oregon Territory who arrived prior to 1853 (see our DLC brochure). The files contain considerable genealogical data. Originals of these are located in the National Archives in Washington DC. The GFO has copies on microfilm and we will copy the entire claim file for you. Use our index of claim holders to determine the office and claim number.

The cost is $10 for the first ten pages and 50¢ for each additional page. You may request paper copies or a CD. If you'd like paper copies and a CD, please add $1. To determine the cost for your file, please email research@gfo.org or phone the GFO at (leave a message for Loretta). We need the index information and your phone or email.

Order a copy of a Donation Land Claim by sending your return address, index information, and the quoted price (see above) to:
