From this photo it would be impossible to give you any information on the value of your dolls. There are so many variables and condition questions that would need to be reviewed and best done in person.

You don't say where in Oregon you are located. There is an Antique Doll Study Club of Oregon and they just had a display at this location in the fall:

East County Historical Organization (ECHO)
PO Box 946
Fairview, OR 97024
503-618-0946

Perhaps if you contacted the ECHO Organization they could put you in touch with someone from the doll group who could get you in the right direction.

Now unless your dolls are original releases from the early 1900s, your dolls will most likely be vintage, not antique, but this group still may be able to get you to the right person.

Be aware that many dolls, even ones that have previously held significant value, are not selling for the amounts they did before the big recession in 2008.

Your dolls may (and hopefully will) still have value, but the prices dolls are selling for these days is not what they used to be. Some serious collectors are holding on to their dolls waiting for the market to correct. I am just offering this up for you so you are not surprised if the people who look at your dolls are talking prices much lower than what you thought they could be worth.

Post back what you learn! Thanks for asking!

Trying to value something like would take lot of information:
pictures, condition, size, provenance, location, and it would still be difficult as the market for any kind of dolls is in the pits and will probably remain that was for many ears to come.
It seems that most people are trying to get rid of their dolls and not very many people are buying - at any price.

Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls are a little different style of dolls but still not that collectable. If there is a story behind your dolls then some of them may have value.
If possible, you should take them to a dealer who specializes in dolls and see if they can help you. You may have to travel to another city to find such a dealer but try Google antique vintage dolls appraisals with your zip code first. You will get a lot of stores and other sites but some dealer's names should also show up. If nothing near you you may have to widen the search.
You can call them and explain what you have and see if they can help you.
Do not stop with only one opinion.

Looking at your picture you appear to have some sort of display so hopefully you have a nice treasure that will be worth the trouble.

This is going to be hard to tell you how much they are actually worth. Depending on the doll and the age will actually determine how much they are worth. In your case I would contact a vintage doll collector or a person who sells vintage dolls to find out how much all these dolls are worth. I see them selling for so many different prices and the dolls are not even the same. It would not be fair to give you a price when you have a large collection of these dolls and they are all so different.

These look old and collectible. Go to pbs.org, find the Antiques Roadshow and read the blog. You may find it. You can also go to a dealer.
