for Union County is Janine M. Bork. Please contact me if you have a desire to add
your data to the database. Please put Union County in the subject line.
Union county boundary changes occurred February 11, 1887
(when Wallowa county
was formed), and in 1901 when a portion of the county (called the Panhandle) was
transferred to Baker county.
