Index to Pierce County and Various Washington Records

Published 1969 - 2013 in The Researcher, Volumes 1 - 44

A bibliography of records published in The Researcher through Vol. 18 was published in the fall of 1987 as a resource for those seeking Pioneer Certificates. That index is, for the most part, repeated here with additions through Vol. 30. The 1987 listing included pioneer surnames and surnames from Bible records. This index does not. In those instances where articles were republished, only the second publication is noted. Numbers shown are volume number (issue number). Abbreviations: WSHS - Washington State Historical Museum Library; SHS - Steilacoom Historical Society.
