Message from the Washington State Library

Due to state budget cuts, the number of staff of the Washington State Library has been reduced. We remain open to the public, will continue our Ask A Librarian service, and will continue offering free obituary searches. However, with a smaller team of librarians our response time will be affected.

Therefore, obituary and other genealogy requests may take up to 4 weeks (instead of 2) to answer. As always, we will strive to respond to questions as quickly and accurately as possible. Thanks for your understanding.

Donations have always been appreciated! Now it is even easier to give to the State Library. Go to http://www.sos.wa.gov/library/LibraryDonations.aspx and click on the Donate Now! button to donate online by credit card.

Visit our Obituary Requests page for more detail about the service: http://www.sos.wa.gov/library/Obituaries.aspx
