Oregon's public records law states that "Under Oregon's Public Records Law, "every person" has a right to inspect any nonexempt public record of a public body in Oregon." The law continues to note that whoever requests public records does not need to provide their identity or a specific purpose for needing the records. To request records, you must contact the "public body" who is the custodian of the records. They may have a form for you to fill out, or you can request via email, phone, or in person. Legally, they have the right to charge you a fee per record.
The state of Oregon defines "public bodies" as: "every state officer, agency, department, division, bureau, board and commission; every county and city governing body, school district, special district, municipal corporation, and any board, department, commission, council, or agency thereof; and any other public agency of this state. This definition includes any state agency, which means "any state officer, department, board, commission or court created by the Constitution or statutes of this state."
Oregon defines public records as: "any writing that contains information relating to the conduct of the public's business, including but not limited to court records, mortgages, and deed records, prepared, owned, used, or retained by a public body regardless of physical form or characteristics. Despite this broad definition, not all public records are available for inspection through Public Records Law. As discussed later, many state and federal laws either prohibit public bodies from disclosing certain records or give public bodies the discretion not to disclose. If a writing qualifies as a public record, the public body must either disclose it in response to a records request or assert an exemption from disclosure."
The Oregon Secretary of State's Office is the government entity who preserves, collects, maintains, and organizes historical public records. They have a robust website that allows you to easily perform research and search for archival records online. Along with old vital records, some of the collections they have are government records, historical photographs, old laws, personnel records, maps, and territorial guides, as well as many other things. You can browse their online resources or visit them in person to view paper documents.
