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
