CREATOR:Harriet D. Munnick├╝George B. Abdill

REMARKS:Correspondence between Harriet D. Munnick and George B. Abdill, chiefly concerning details of genealogies of individuals interned at the Grand Ronde Indian Reservation. In the decades following the Rogue River Indian War [1855-1858], the Grand Ronde Reservation was a collecting point for many different Indian groups removed from their traditional lands.; Harriet D. Munnick compiled a complete set of Roman Catholic parish records [baptisms, confirmations, marriages, etc.] for Oregon mission churches. George B. Abdill was the first director of the Douglas County Museum. These letters were written between 1966 and 1980 [chiefly, 1966-1968], and usually deal with specific questions of individual genealogy. A separate sheet lists the dates and/or subjects of the letters. The letters are also indexed in the Research Library's "Grey File".
