hastings of oregon

Journal by bhastings

Hello all
I am very new at this. I have been born, raised, and haved lived the last 34 years in a small town named madras Oregon. My Hastings descendant's come from another small town in Oregon named wasco. I have done some research on my family origins but not my direct line and so today is my first adventure into genealogy. I look forward on collaborating with anyone who can shed some light on the genealogical line of Hastings from wasco Oregon.

Surnames: HASTINGS

Ok - Oh yes -never give in - don't lose it up top - walk away >>> come back to it . LDS ( latter day saints ) have the biggest genealogy records in the world . some people join them ( at a cost ) others don't - but respect their website even when using it - To get started - Put in > familysearch.org. >go to IGI (international etc')
> in region -scroll down - click on North America > Country - united states > counties - Scroll down click on oregon - Up top in Surname - put in Hastings ( nothing else need be entered . > click on search - up will come over 200 Hasting entries . Now you do the research . Dive in > ( don't worry about mistakes - no body is going to beat you up ) Take it slow - Take the best you think first & so on & so on . Their are other websites . put in screen Where ever - using words like > ancestry - genealogy - Families plus . you will get swamped .with answers . watch out on the free ones . some later want to charge . Righty oh !!!! are you ready ??? well in you go and enjoy yourself - Regards -edmondsallan
