Jackson County Genealogy Library

Once upon a time . . . the very talented quilters from the Jacksonville Museum Quilters Guild set out to make unique quilts, each with a story to tell about the inhabitants and early history of the Rogue Valley. Many years later the collection found itself without a home. Ultimately, the historical quilt collection was donated to the Jackson County Genealogy Library (JCGL) where the quilts are displayed in the reading room at the Library.

One of the objectives of the JCGL Quilt Committee is to focus on the relationship of quilts to family history and genealogy. Toward that end, we will continue the series of “Quilts and Genealogy”. These talks are given on the fourth Tuesday each month (except for December) at 1:30 pm at JCGL. Jackson County Genealogy Library can be found at 3405 S Pacific Hwy, Medford, OR
