BIRTH CERTIFICATES

We are connected to the Center for Health Statistics (Vital Records in Olympia) and can issue certified copies of birth certificates (often used for passports, school enrollment, tribal enrollment, Social Security benefits, etc.) for individuals born in Washington State from 1921 to present. 

DEATH CERTIFICATES

Starting the end of 2014 our system went electronic.  Any deaths occurring in Washington State from the end of 2014 to current can be requested here in our office.  For deaths recorded prior to this you will still need to contact Center for Health Statistics in Olympia and request certified copies from them.
