Ontario Basque Club Sustraiak Project
Ontario, Oregon Basque Club’s Sustraiak Project aims to provide members with education and support to help them research and document the histories of their Basque ancestors, and serve as a repository for collected materials. Our goal is to learn more about the backgrounds of the families that make up our Basque community in order to preserve these stories for future generations and gain a better understanding of our collective past. In addition to collecting immigration narratives, Sustraiak helps local Basques trace their genealogies, in some cases, back to the sixteenth century Basque Country.

Collection and digital archiving of:

  • Family photos

  • Birth, marriage and death documents     

  • Immigration documents

  • Family Trees

  • Coats of arms

Education and Support:

  • Presentations on Basque genealogy and heraldry

  • Hands-on instruction in Genealogical research

  • Resources for deciphering documents  

  • Assistance locating ancestral homes       

  • Help sessions

  • Group research trips
