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.
Note the following deaths were indexed out of sequence. I am just now beginning 1909 and mistakenly indexed the first of January 1910. Subsequent posts will be for 1909! Sorry for the confusion.
This blog’s search feature will search all names that I have ever posted here. Over 2,200 deaths now indexed!
