The Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery Descendant Project

To honor the permanent members of the Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery that completed the trip to the Pacific Ocean, the Clatsop County, Oregon, and the Pacific County, Washington, Genealogical Societies are offering a “Corps of Discovery Descendant Certificate” to any person who can document they are a descendant to any permanent member of the 1804-1806 expedition. Data will be stored at the Lewis & Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, Inc. Library in Great Falls, Montana. A book will be published after May 22, 2004, the official start of the 200th anniversary of the expedition and include all the accepted genealogical data.
