The first state government digital archive belongs to Washington State. Its
purpose is the "preservation of electronic records from both State and Local
agencies that have permanent legal, fiscal or historical value."
The online collections are in their infancy. For instance, the Birth Records
collection includes from Pierce and Spokane counties and from Walla Walla only.
Other collections include:
- census records
- naturalization records
- inmate records
- military records
- death records
- marriage records
- elected officials oaths of office
- physicians practicing in Washington
