States: Oregon: Lane
HI Sandra, I know in other states the counties did keep official records before the State mandated them and they are kept in the County Clerk's office.
Some states the earliest records are sent to State Archives.
Maybe the Oregon Genealogical Society and Research Library, www.rootsweb.com/~orlincogs/ogsinfo.htm can answer your question for Lane Co. You could also do a web search on Lane County Oregon and their official County web site should appear along with the County Clerk's office contact info. Successful Hunting!
