Adams County Birth Records

Adams County Birth Records are now available online at the Washington State Digital Archives.  Contained in this collection are over 560 names of people who were born in Adams County from 1893-1907, 1910-1915 (a few copies of state returns), (several delayed birth returns: 1942). Returns of birth were recorded by each county auditor prior to 1907 when the functions were transferred to the state. With a few exceptions, before 1891 births were not recorded by any level of government in Washington. Birth returns contain the names of parents, name of child, date, and birthplace. The Adams County Birth Records were transcribed from the original Adams County Birth Returns which are located at the Washington State Archives, Eastern Regional Branch. For further details on the information contained within the indexes and the original records, go to the Birth Records page and select a county.  The indexes can also be examined through a simple search or detailed search.
