Early Pioneer Certificate
The Bend Genealogical Society issues certificates to persons who are directly descended
from pioneers who settled in Central Oregon (i.e., counties of Deschutes, Crook,
Jefferson, Wasco, Klamath or Lake) before 1950.
Applicants must prove direct line of descent and prove that the ancestor settled
in Central Oregon.
Applicants may apply for certificates issued to them-selves or to other persons.
The person to whom the certificate is issued does not need to currently live in Oregon.
The purpose of the program is to recognize families of the pioneers, encourage people
to undertake genealogical research and provide genealogical resources for researchers
in our library.
Cost of the Certificate:
$10.00 plus $2.00 S&H
No S&H if picked up at the library
The certificate, sequentially serialized, is printed on 8 1/2” x 11” parchment and
suitable for framing.
