Due to COVID-19, the research library is temporarily closed to visitors. Our volunteer staffing is limited, and response times to inquires will be delayed.  We will get back to you as soon as we can. Thank you for your support!

Researching your ancestors, your home, or just curious about local history? Come visit our research library, housed in the Miller Log Cabin. We are located at 657 Market Street in Lafayette, Oregon.

If you are researching Yamhill County history or your family’s history, please provide plenty of information for our researchers. Please tell us what you are researching. The more detail, the better our staff can respond. Important information can be found in related surnames, spelling derivations, dates, etc.

NOTE: Due to staffing limitations, extensive research inquires via phone or email will incur a fee.
