  • R. L. Polk & Co.'s Oregon and Washington Gazetteer and Business Directory, 1909-1910. Seattle, Washington: R.L. Polk, 1909. (FamilySearch.org Family History Library film 1000367.) 
  • Maps on microfilm are available as described in Familysearch.org Family History Library catalog.
  • Many maps can be found on-line. To locate applicable maps use a search engine such, as Google or Yahoo and terms such as Oregon Gazet(t)eer or maps.
