Catholic Church Records of the Pacific Northwest

Roseburg Register and Missions (1853-1911)

Portland Register (1852-1871)

Compiled by Harriet Duncan Munnick

Portland, OR: Binford & Mort, 1986

This is the fifth of a series of Catholic Church Records of the Northwest. The first three volumes contain names of French Canadians and Native Americans.

The fourth volume - the Oregon City and Salem registers - introduced city people and farmers.

With this volume, we see people from Oregon's largest city - Portland. The parish of the Immaculate Conception was founded in 1853 and was Portland's only Catholic church for 23 years. The names found within the church registers belong to business leaders, immigrants, urban laborers, farmers, and some of the transient population that moved from boom town to boom town.

The parishes that served Roseburg were home to French-Canadians and mixed-blood, former fur trade employees, miners, as well as city dwellers.

The book is only $25.00, plus postage. To order, click here.

The Mission of Roseburg was visited for the first time by Rev. Father Croke in 1853. He traveled by horseback and went to Jacksonville, Canyonville, and Scottsburg. Missionary visits were made to almost every town in present day Coos, Curry, Douglas, and Josephine Counties.

Portland Register:

The Church of the Immaculate Conception was built in 1851. From the humble beginning in the small frame building at Sixth and Davis Streets in Portland, the church went on to become the Cathedral for the Archdiocese of Portland. For anyone researching the Portland area, this book is a "must have."
