In Memory of Gary Jaensch
September 28, 1941 - January 28, 2011


Gary Jaensch contributed more to Oregon Genealogy than anyone I know.  He was the one who answered your questions, found your answers, and pushed me to add more to the online pages. He not only answered your questions, he found answers to questions you didn't ask. Genealogy was his passion, didn't seem to matter if it was his own or someone asking for help. 

The time, love and energy he put into Baker, Union and Wallowa County pages are an enduring example to all of us as to how we can help researchers. May his legacy live on in each and every page we put online and with each and every researcher he has helped.  He will be so missed, and especially by me....
