It’s become an annual event, but we never tire of reading about it: Our Washington State Digital Archives and Washington State Library were again named among the 75 best genealogy websites for states by Family Tree magazine.
Here are the excerpts from the magazine’s December issue:
Washington State Archives: Digital Archives
This terrific site already has more than 50 million searchable records online, including birth, marriage, death, census, cemetery and naturalization records. On the home page, search by name or keyword in all collections or just one. For more advanced search options, select a collection under Detailed Search. Click News for archivists’ highlights from the collections.
Washington State Library
To find your ancestor mentioned in Washington newspapers published between 1852 and 1892, click on Digital Collections and then on Historical Newspaper in Washington. Use the Personal Name Search. Back on the home page, click on Genealogy for an overview of family history resources at the library.
