    My brain exploded within 3 minutes watching this webinar. I was born and grew up in Oregon, both my parents and their parents (and past generations) were born and grew up in Idaho & Utah. We visited back and forth frequently. I was given some genealogy done by relatives (largely from family stories), but couldn’t trace it back. That map of early territorial NW in a flash made me understand. I need to revisit Oregon territory when Idaho was part of it: I did manage to find my originating families and trace them as they migrated (a single birth location in a census gave me the needed clue, and I followed collatoral lines to ancestral communities,and from there forward again on my own lines), but I still have gaps in my NW family. The irony: I started working on this after I’d moved to New England for a new job- where I’ve lived for 25 years. I need another pilgrimage- this time west. I think my missing records are there. This was a GREAT webinar! Thank you.
