Thurston County Recording


Genealogy Research

Using the records that are available in our Public Records room our customers search for genealogical history. Our staff assist on-site customers by teaching them how to search and assisting them when necessary. Most original documents have been filmed and are easily accessible on microfilm.
Records are also available with the Thurston County Public Health & Social Services Department.  Customers can order copies of all Washington State birth and death records from July 1907 to present.

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH), Center for Health Statistics has marriage, divorce, birth and death records for the following time periods:

  • Marriage & Divorce: 1968 to present
  • Birth & Death: 1907 to present

Please contact DOH for more information.

If you are unsure what county the birth, death or marriage was filed/recorded you will need to contact each county directly if the event took place prior to when the state has the records.
