Eugene Morning Register – Death Notices/Obituaries

The Eugene Morning Register was published in Eugene, OR for many years before it merged with the Eugene Daily Guard in 1930 – becoming the Eugene Register – Guard, that is still published today.  If you are looking for current obituaries in the Lane County, Oregon area please click this link  Register – Guard .

I previously published an index of deaths recorded in Eugene, OR newspapers up until the beginning of the Oregon Death Index (1903) – an index of death certificates filed with the State of Oregon.  As I did research I found that in the early years many deaths were not recorded with a death certificate.  I hope that this index will help bridge that gap.

These names are either from a death notice, an obituary or related article.

This blog’s search feature will search all names that I have ever posted here.  Over 2,000 deaths now indexed!
