The Washington State Digital Archives maintains a huge repository of electronic records that relate to the state and local counties within Washington. These records were determined to have historic, legal and fiscal value, and the goal was to digitally preserve these records in a single place and make it accessible to the public. Vital records like death certificates, birth certificates and marriage licenses for various counties are stored here, as well as military, state and local government, corporation and land records.
Both deaths and births were required to be reported to the local County Auditor after 1891 when the Washington State Legislature enacted this law. Physicians and coroners were forced to fill out death returns and file them locally to go into the official record. This duty was later transferred in 1907 to the state level, with the Center for Health Statistics becoming responsible for maintaining the state's vital records.
The Washington State Digital Archives often displays a digital image of the source record, when available, that can be downloaded and printed at no cost.
