Research Opportunities at the Siuslaw Pioneer Museum

During the Sept. 18th meeting, SGS members were treated to a wonderful presentation by the John Quay Heritage Players who portrayed Siuslaw pioneer families. They re-enacted scenes of historical events and life of early settlers.

In addition, the Kyle Research Library staff and volunteers described the files and resources available for research, which may be of particular interest to genealogist.  The staff created an index of Siuslaw pioneer families as a helpful research tool.  The index is available in the museum’s library, however if you are interested in obtaining the index to review on your own computer, submit a request to SGS HERE. The spreadsheet file will be emailed to you.  The index will continue to be updated as more information becomes available to the museum. As such, visit the museum library for the most up-to-date version.

Vertical Graveyards
Short on space, Hong Kong has resorted to vertical gravesites on hillsides.  View the photos and article from the MyModernMe site HERE. On his blog, Dick Eastman also described this practice HERE
