Anyway, I didn't really find what I was looking for but I need to get a library card and then I can check out books, ask for inter-library loans, etc. Because I'm certain that some of the books I want will have to be shared from other libraries. Those I'd really like to find are somewhat regional so I didn't expect TCPL to have them. I found a little bit of info and got my feet wet so I feel it was a successful trip. The manager, Sarah, was so nice and helpful.
I would like to be able to search newspapers but I don't want to pay for another membership and it seems like every organization on the Internet charges at least $9.95 a month. I already subscribe to three online research/genealogy sites: Ancestry.com, Fold3 and Find My Past. So the flyer I found for the Tillamook Family History Center at the local LDS church by the Tillamook Genealogy Study Group made my day! They are open on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a few hours each day. I will be going!
As I've said before, the more I write and search, the more I need to write and search! I have one year to finish it all up. My self-imposed goal. Of course, I want it to be done before then!
Please send your info sheets back to me ASAP so you don't accidentally throw them out. I won't accept the excuse that the dog ate it!

Ta ta for now,
